NASW-NYS Thanks the Caucus for Standing with NYS Social Workers to Push Important Reforms

NASW-NYS thanks the New York State Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic, and Asian Legislative Caucus, especially Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda and Assistant Speaker Felix Ortiz for standing with NYS social workers and the social work profession by including social workers and NASW-NYS’s legislative priorities in their 2018 Annual People’s budget, including:
  • The Social Work Investment Initiative (pg 31-32) which seeks to end the licensure exemption and requests substantial state investment into the social work profession
  • Reforming school disciplinary practices to put students in front of social workers and guidance counselors, not police officers and judges (pg 17)
