Social Workers as Leaders in Public Life


Presenters: Representative Hodan Hassan, MSW; and Representative Heather Edelson, MSW


Please join us for a discussion with guests Representatives Hodan Hassan and Heather Edelson, both social workers serving in our state House of Representatives. They will share insights on how their social work background informs them as policymakers and running campaigns. They will also discuss how social workers can get involved in policy and civic engagement. Any social workers in community practice,  or who are working in or interested in policy advocacy, community organizing, social welfare policy, or civic engagement should attend this webinar.
