Feeling the impact of ‘The Great Backslide?’ Looking for how to let your voice be heard in a legislative arena? Unsure of where to begin? Come join your interim Legislative Chair in a space where we're looking to build connection, see faces, and have conversations in real time on where to begin and what legislation advocacy looks like. Together, we’ll learn how to be an effective advocate and about our policy priorities, relevant bills, and get a chance to put Macro Social Work skills in action.

Learning Objectives
Social Work Legislation 101 makes social workers and social work students more aware of the legacy of responsibility Social Workers share in being advocates for social justice while motivating and equipping them to be advocates for social change. Social workers, will be exposed to and informed of the current state as well as national emerging political and social issues which impact the social work profession and those they serve. Though attending, Social Workers will gain a basic understanding of state government and the political process; thereby, learning how to employ the method of social justice advocacy.
