By Cherie Bohaboy :

This topic must be taken to the forefront of social work priorities. Global environmental changes disproportionately impact the most socially vulnerable in the United States and around the world. Social work organizations must collaborate with a multitude of professional disciplines for research, results and resolutions. Dr. Reyes Mason combines environmental research challenges with interventions and collaboration as a model for practice. This is a social worker call to action for the communities we represent with our available knowledge to enact protective sustainable measures in proposals, policies, and projects for environmental justice.
