Lobby Day - March 2007
A great way to learn about advocacy - doing it with colleagues in Tallahassee!
By joining forces with NASW, we demonstrate to legislators and other leaders in Florida the importance of social work issues, such as the Professional Social Worker Identification Bill, and help to move our legislative agenda forward (see http://www.naswfl.org/lobbyday.html).
Last year, over 450 social workers participated. We hope everyone - social workers, students, faculty, and all—will help us break the 500 mark. We hope to see YOU there!
SOCIAL WORK LOBBY DAY 2007 SCHEDULE
January - February 2007 - Legislative Summits: Three local events, held in North, Central, and South Florida, designed to provide advance training for Lobby Day.
