Social workers, if we vote, can have a major influence on election results and, therefore, legislation, government, and policy. Chapter PACE committees must go beyond endorsements and mobilize members to volunteer and vote for endorsed candidates.
Elections make a difference. Elected officials create and pass policies that effect our clients and our profession. This happens on all levels, including Congress, at state legislatures and in county and city councils.
NASW is proud that the social work perspective continues to be represented in the halls of Congress.
