Become a New York State Champion of Social Justice!
The current social climate has placed extra emphasis on the impact that policy and government have on our everyday lives. As social workers, we harness the expertise to advocate on behalf of the communities we serve to speak truth to power. We accomplish this by going directly to the source, the New York State legislature.
NASW-NYS is the place to start! We are giving interested social workers a chance to receive direct preparation, coaching and an opportunity to advocate directly with legislators. We are calling on those who can offer their time and passion for political advocacy.
- Do you want social workers and the issues we are passionate about to be front and center during legislative session?
- Do you have an interest in learning how government and political social work operates?
- Do you want hands on advocacy and policy training? Or, a chance to put community organizing on your resume?
If you answered yes to any of these, then you must be at our training at 5:30pm on November 2nd. We need your help to achieve our goal of providing social workers the tools they need to advocate for themselves and their clients year-round, creating a loud thunder of social work voices that cannot be ignored.
Open and free for all social workers to attend, and leadership positions are available to NASW-NYS members!
