This article addresses the relationship between the discipline of sociology and social change. It argues that sociology, and its professional associations, are challenged to choose between being a progressive force for change or a legitmator of the status quo. The core focus of the article is the argument that the Association of Applied and Clinical Sociology has a responsibility to assist in the liberation of the oppressed because of its mission to serve the applied and clinical needs of its constituency.
