2019 Advocacy Day Recap

NASW-Illinois Chapter

With over 800 social workers and social work students in attendance yesterday, and a passionate presentation from Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, the social work community had a strong presence at the Illinois State Capitol yesterday for our annual Social Work Advocacy Day. A great deal of our legislative action and activity yesterday can be found on NASW-Illinois Chapter social media.  I would also encourage all of you to check out the Advocacy Day app which you can download here (for event, type in "NASW-IL").
