Advocating for a New Century of Cultural Justice


Next month, Fordham University will host this year’s National Organization of Forensic Social Work (NOFSW) conference, “21st Century Forensic Practice: Moving Beyond Cultural Competence,” at its Lincoln Center campus.

The conference, which runs July 25 to 27, will explore ways to integrate cultural competence with justice in clinical, organizational, community, and policy practices, with the aim of advancing a new century of cultural justice, dignity, respect, and acceptance.
“It’s fitting that this year’s program is being held in New York City, where our Statue of Liberty reminds us that equality and justice is meant for everyone,” said Tina Maschi, Ph.D., associate professor at the Graduate School of Social Service and founder of the Be The Evidence Project (BTEP), which is co-sponsoring the conference.

“This year’s program has some exciting and innovative presentations and field site visits to programs in which forensic social work plays a critical role,” she said.
