Political Action for Candidate Election Committee (PACE)

What is PACE:

Political Action for Candidate Election (PACE) is the political action arm of the National Association of Social Workers on both the federal and state level.  PACE endorses and financially contributes to candidates from any party who support NASW’s policy agenda.

The NASW-NYS PACE endorses and contributes to local and state races. The PACE Committee is responsible for working collaboratively with the Chapter to guide the Chapter in the process of endorsements, raising and disbursing funds for political action in the partisan area.

NASW-NYS PACE mobilizes state and local social workers to vote by informing NASW members of which candidates NYS PACE has endorsed. PACE contributions are used to support state and local candidates who support NASW’s policy agenda through fundraisers and campaign contributions.
