The Road to November

The November 2020 General Election is shaping up to be the most important election of our lifetimes. The COVID-19 pandemic is creating new and different processes for voting, efforts at voter disenfranchisement are occurring, and the stakes of the presidential election are higher than they have been in decades. It is imperative not only that social workers be engaged in this election cycle, but that we strive to empower our clients and the communities in which they live to exercise their right to vote.

From Labor Day to Election Day, NASW-NJ will be bringing you a series of weekly free Community Conversations, tools, and resources under the Road to November banner to help you, your clients, and the community-at-large engage fully in this election cycle. You'll find a list of Community Conversations (both live and on-demand) below.
