We know social workers serve their clients and their communities on any given day.
We know we are a profession dedicated to communities, families and individuals. 
We know that we need to tell more people, with pride, about the good work we do.
The National Social Work Public Education Campaign has created tools for social workers to use to educate people about the breadth and depth of the profession.  We have created advertising, public relations and marketing materials that tell people about the profession.  Now, we have a video that will show people that, on any given day, social workers help in so many ways.
