Voting is Social Work!

 

The NASW Code of Ethics calls on social workers to promote informed public participation in shaping social policy and institutions.(6.02) Social workers have an important role to play in registering citizens to vote, particularly vulnerable populations. We are here to serve as a resource for members who wish to organize voter registration drives, change public policy related to voting rights, and support members in their efforts to become involved in policy advocacy and civic responsibilities.

 

The following is a list of resources you can use to help guide you (or your students if you are at a school of social work):
