2018 Legislative Education Advocacy Day is Wednesday, March 21.

What is LEAD?

LEAD stands for Legislative Education and Advocacy Day. The Social Work Student LEAD event is hosted annually by the National Association of Social Workers - New York State (NASW-NYS) Chapter, the New York State Social Work Education Association (NYSSWEA), and the New York State Association of the Deans of Schools of Social Work, and brings hundreds of social work students and professionals to the Capitol in Albany. The goal of this event is to further social workers’ knowledge about policy issues in substantive areas of social work practice, teach participants about legislative advocacy, and provide an opportunity for social workers to lobby on behalf of specific legislation.

What are we advocating for?

This year, the 2018 Social Work Student LEAD event will advocate for:

(1) Social Work Investment Initiative (#InvestinSocialWork)

(2) Banning conversion therapy (#BornPerfect)
