Social Work Day at the Capitol


DAC1

2021 Minnesota Social Work Online Advocacy Day

Wednesday, April 14 - 9 a.m.-12 p.m.


3 CEUs - FREE AND OPEN TO ALL SOCIAL WORKERS AND STUDENTS!


Join over 1,000 social workers from across the state to learn about how current legislative issues affect our profession and those we serve. Hear from policy professionals speaking about key policies and bills moving through the legislature, prepare to advocate on the issues you care about, and get energized by rallying online with peers and colleagues before connecting with your representatives to promote change in our state!

This is an event for ALL social workers AND social work students! Bring your colleagues, supervisors, and interns. Share this event with your students, supervisees, and peers.

We may not be rallying in the Capitol Rotunda, but we can advocate from our homes, in our schools and organizations, and our communities. Let's make some noise, Minnesota!!
