Hello fellow Social Work students! The NASW Legislative Lobby Days registration is now open! Come join your fellow social workers as we lobby and advocate in Sacramento for those in need. SWGSA has secured funds to help a limited number of students who cannot afford registration.
Current MSW Students: If you registered On or after December 1st 2016 and wish to apply for scholarship to cover costs of registration please email SWGSA Lobby Days coordinator Gabriel Montes at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a limited number of scholarships available. First come, first serve.
BASW Students: USWA will share info soon regarding support for registration costs.
We encourage all others who can afford to register now to do so at naswca.org/?page=164
and attend the event.
The conference is Sunday March 12 and rally/legislative appointments are Monday March 13th. SWGSA will also secure a 20 room block for the weekend with discounted rates in a hotel close to the Sacramento Convention Center for students to reserve and share. In addition, a Saturday evening social mixer and a Sunday evening sign party/bbq is in the works. More details to come as we get closer to the event.
Some details from the NASW website: " Legislative Lobby Days is a two-day event that educates students and professionals about important legislation affecting clients and the social work profession. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the legislative process and to get a “hands-on” lobbying experience talking with state legislators and/or their staff about important issues."
