NASW-Michigan invites you to participate in our Capitol Action Day during Social Work Month Sponsored by Senator Stephanie Chang (SD-1)



Date: March 19, 2020

Location: 201 Townsend St, Binsfield Office-Room 500 - Lansing, MI 48933

Tentative Agenda: TBA - Closer to event date - dependent on meeting times with legislators

Registration Cost: NASW Member Cost: $50 (2.0 CEs).

Registration Deadline: March 7th


Capitol Action Day will give social workers hands-on experience in the legislative process. Participants will learn about legislative advocacy and will talk directly to state legislators to advocate for funding to address Workforce Development, School Social Workers, Justice &Corrections Social Workers, and Student Loan Debt.



The goal will be to raise legislators’ awareness about the social work profession, NASW, Michigan, and the issues we tackle in the field every day.


Any NASW-Michigan members who are interested or experienced in state legislative and policy advocacy are encouraged to attend. Social workers need to have a voice at the policy table and we need YOU to help do that!

Experience is preferred but not required. Non-student participants are expected to have the capacity to serve as role models, mentors, and team leaders for the day (you will be paired with 1-2 students). Everyone will be trained prior to the legislative visits. This will be an extraordinary learning experience for everyone, especially students who are considering policy advocacy as part of their career path.
