Social workers advocate on behalf of individuals and larger systems to increase equity and access to resources such as housing, food, and health services. Our profession was established around the principles of social justice and one of the cores of our Code of Ethics is that we challenge social injustice with and on behalf of vulnerable and oppressed individuals and groups of people.
