Abstract

The community organization method is applied when the society takes the initiative to solve its problems and wants to meet its needs. In this case, society plays different roles in addressing its various needs and problems. People dealing with the problem in the community or people directly affected by the problem take the lead in solving problems. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a worldwide social and economic crisis. This has made deep-rooted inequalities worse and visible in the communities most marginalized by the crisis. In this context, community organizers can respond to inequalities that become visible by fulfilling their various roles with the method of community organization, which is one of the components of the social work mission and aims to ensure social justice and equality.
