SOCIAL WORK ADVOCACY IN ACTION!

March 2, 2020

35 MSW and BSW students participated in lobbying at their capitol on Feb 17, 2020! Students made appointments with their representatives to discuss bills that were important to them. They toured the capitol, viewed floor action (where representatives vote on bills), and learned about the legislative process and the role of social workers in the creation of policy. Thank you to Dr. Pérez for coordinating and leading the event and to Dr. DeFilippis for leading our Policy Conference training session!
