What Happens When Social Workers Get Involved in Politics
We Engage in Political Action
Social workers give time, money, and their valuable perspective to campaigns that elect public officials who support NASW policy goals.
Social Work Values Become Policies
Elected officials who are committed to social work values write, co-sponsor, and vote for legislation that becomes public policy.
We Put Policies Into Practice
Sound public policies enable social workers to meet human needs, be fairly compensated, and promote social justice.
