Dr. Mooradian on Family Separation for Asylum Seekers

Dear MSU School of Social Work Community,

In response to the unfolding federal policy that separates and detains children from asylum-seeking families, the National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work has released an open letter reproduced here. I have expressed firm support of this non-partisan statement, and opposition to this policy which violates human rights, disregards decades of practice and research knowledge related to human development and family relationships, and needlessly introduces adverse childhood experiences. I urge you to consider the effects of this policy as it continues to unfold, and to take appropriate social action in accord with your professional roles and personal conscience.
