Group work can be an effective outlet for facilitating client empowerment at individual and systemic levels. This article outlines strategies for increasing attention to social justice issues in group work over the next decade within education, training, supervision, practice, and research. Drawing from historical perspectives, current literature, and experience as social justice-minded scholars, educators, and practitioners, the authors describe numerous and unique opportunities as well as potential challenges for group workers engaging in social justice advocacy and practice. Topics explored include consciousness raising, group empowerment, community organizing, definitions of social justice, attribution theory, and sociopolitical identity development.
