In this article, I share my experiences from over 15 years as a social work practitioner, researcher, educator, and academic. Drawing upon these experiences, I reflect on the state of human rights in social work and present a model for practicing human rights in social work. This article was adapted from the inaugural lecture of the Human Rights Speaker Series at West Chester University in Philadelphia on November 9, 2017.
