During Social Work Month, consider asking a respected member of the community to write a letter or make a public statement about the value of social workers in your town. Please notify your NASW Chapter about any public endorsements you secure.
Often what makes Social Work Month events newsworthy or advertising compelling, is the inclusion of public recognition from influential non-social workers, such as a:
Public official who issues and signs a proclamation in honor of Social Work Month
Local Celebrity who lends their time to a cause or program led by social workers
Top employer (such as a hospital) that promotes its social work services to all patients
Community leader who leads an organization that collaborates with social workers
Long-time resident who has benefited from social work services
