As professional social workers, we are ethically and morally obligated to advocate and promote social justice.  In addition, as professional social workers, we must understand the theoretical frameworks that will guide us in our work.   Applying the concepts of the Black Perspective and the Feminist Perspective offers social workers insight into contemporary social justice issues and the existing biases and oppression. 
 For this discussion
