Texas Social Workers Can Now Turn Away LGBTQ+ Citizens And Disabled Citizens!!! Disgusting!!!
"Texas social workers can now turn away LGBTQ clients and those with a disability.
The state Board of Social Work Examiners voted unanimously to change a section of its code of conduct last week following a recommendation from Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, to remove protections for sexual orientation, gender identity and disability. Abbott’s office said the change was suggested because the board’s nondiscrimination clause went beyond the state’s policy on social work, according to The Associated Press." (Courtesy NBC)
What is this world coming to?!? Middle of a Pandemic no less. What social worker and a board of all things would do this? Each member of that board should be barred from ever practicing in any other state ever again! #Discrimination #LGBTQ #Disability #SocialWorkers #News #COVID19
