Social Workers Stand Up!
Social Workers Stand Up
NASW has launched a "Social Workers Stand Up" campaign during Social Work Month in March 2017.

The campaign focuses on educating the public about how social workers stand up for others, including some of the most vulnerable people in our society, and make positive contributions to society.

The campaign also highlights the importance of the social work title, and why getting the assistance of an educated and licensed social worker is so important.

Look for more details about the campaign here.
