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 and Social Action (LASA) Committee reviews 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.
