Hello CSJ Community,
Please find the study we did for Counselors for Social Justice at the Social Justice Summit at the 2019 ACA Convention in New Orleans. A Call For Social Justice In The American Counseling Association:
Leaders and members of seven social justice-oriented divisions of the American Counseling Association (ACA)
met at a Social Justice Summit called by the Counselors for Social Justice in March 2019 at the ACA National
Convention in New Orleans. The goal of the summit was to create conversations among members of these seven
divisions around ways to improve social justice within the ACA. These discussions at the summit were transcribed
and summarized for the purpose of creating a document to outline how ACA could improve its social justice practice.
The resulting call for social justice in ACA includes three topics derived from discussions of social justice in the
counseling profession: social justice in the organization of ACA, social justice for the people in ACA, and social
justice at the ACA conference. Implications for improved social justice practice in the organization are provided
