Theme chosen for 2014 Social Work Month

'All people matter' framed by four cartoon colored hands as frameNASW has chosen All People Matter as the theme for National Professional Social Work Month 2014.

The theme was chosen because history has shown that the policies and programs created by social workers seek to give people, regardless of their circumstances, the opportunity to cope with and transcend obstacles.

Social workers believe that each person has the right and potential to lead a productive and fulfilling life with dignity.

Celebrated each March, National Professional Social Work Month encourages social workers and their fans across the country to promote the value of the profession and highlight social workers’ important contribution to society.

In the approaching months, NASW and its chapters will craft new tools and activities for the March celebration. Check for updates in future issues of the NASW News.
