Legislative Priorities

Advocacy is critical to the health of our profession, our clients, and the communities we serve.  We have a robust legislative agenda that combines both professional issues, those of our clients and touches on broader social justice issues.  Our priorities are aligned with our national offices and stem from our policy statements in Social Work Speaks.

Each year, our Legislative Advocacy and Social Action Committee review our priorities, broader professional and social issues throughout the state and help set our agenda for the year.  Our team works closely with legislators, their staff, coalitions and our members to lend thought leadership, drive smart policy and strengthen our communities through legislative work.

Legislative Alerts

We monitor thousands of pieces of legislation each year and on occasion, put calls to action out for our members to provide feedback, comment on legislation and testify with the organization.  Your voice is critical to the dialogue and our goal is to make it easy for you to engage in advocacy.  Sign up for legislative alerts to remain informed and mobilize when the time comes.
