New Mexico Counselors for Advocacy and Social Justice (NMCASJ)

CASJ is an organization of counselors who believe social justice and advocacy are critical to the counseling profession, de-stigmatization of mental health, and creating an equitable society.

 

The mission of CASJ, acting in accord with NMCA and CSJ, is to promote social justice by:

 

  • Promoting a consciousness of social justice through inclusive dialogue within the counseling profession

 

  • Contributing to the process of developing personal and professional competencies in advocacy and social justice

 

  • Fostering individual, family, and community wellness within cultural contexts

 

  • Engaging in mutual and equitable relationships that cultivate communication and collaboration among communities through outreach and networking.

 

  • Providing a proactive and non-violent presence in the challenge to generate social consciousness within oppressive systems.

 

  • Supporting professional development and leadership through mentoring

 

  • Creating an inclusive culture which means allowing for anonymous comments at each meeting, allowing for an atmosphere where culturally unique and opinionated voices can be heard.
