Algeria will now direct the government and policy advocacy efforts of NASW-Michigan and serve as the association’s staff lobbyist.

Read Algeria's welcome letter below:

 

I am happy to announce that I will be joining the NASW family as the Director of Public Policy! I firmly believe in social justice and social change and am committed to working with groups at the grassroots and policy level to help create equitable outcomes for many.

 

Prior to NASW-Michigan, I worked as a restorative justice facilitator in the Lansing Schools District helping to reduce student suspension rates and spent time on research and evaluation projects at Michigan State University’s School of Social Work. While attending MSU, I have been a part of their Advocacy Scholars Program which has given me effective policy and advocacy training and am certified by the University of Connecticut's Nancy M. Humphries Campaign School for Political Social Workers - which teaches social workers to run compelling campaigns. 

 

While my interests vary, I am most passionate about decarceration, equitable communities, and social work political engagement. Outside of NASW, I am a mother to a creative and curious daughter and enjoy poetry and high intensity workouts.

 

Please feel free to reach out to me at any time at awilson.naswmi@socialworkers.org or at 517-487-1548, ex 11.

 

Algeria Wilson, BSW

Director of Public Policy

National Association of Social Workers - Michigan Chapter

 

Algeria Wilson holds a Bachelors in Social Work from The University of Cincinnati and is expected to graduate with her Masters in Social Work from Michigan State University spring semester of 2019.
