Wondering how you can impact some of the issues you’ve been hearing about in the news?
Wondering how social workers can participate in shaping public policy?

The Wayne State School of Social Work has partnered with NASW-MI Region 11 and the Information Center to host the Social Work & Public Policy Town Hall. We invite you to join us in learing how social workers can play a key role in public policy and political activism. 

NASW-Michigan’s Policy Director and Vice President of Social Policy will provide an overview of the legislative activities of NASW-Michigan, social work's role and ethical mandate in public policy, and how social workers can get involved in policy issues.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify ethical foundation (principles and standards) of social workers' engaging in the public policy development process.
  • Provide an overview and understanding of the many areas where public policy affects our lives and those of our clients.
  • Provide an understanding of the compelling reasons for being involved in the public policy development process, and the many opportunities to get involved.
  • Identify multiple ways social workers can impact public policy

1.5 CEs are available, which are FREE for NASW members and students and $25 for non-members
