Social Work Advocacy Day (SWAD) at the Capitol

We’re joining the The National Association of Social Workers

Social Work Advocacy Day (SWAD) at the Capitol on March 7th 2019 in Austin

If you’re a social worker in Austin who is passionate about international child protection, we'd love to meet you! We thought this would be a fun way to connect and join our fellow social workers to learn how we can advocate together in Texas.

Here’s the basic agenda for that day.

-          8 am – Arrive and check-in at the Legislative Conference Center

-          9 am – Remarks by key Legislators to kick off the day

-          9:15 – Advocacy 101: How to make an effective Legislative Visit

-          10:15 am – Panel Presentation from Social Workers in the Capitol

-          11 am – Immigration Teach-In

-          12 pm – Lunch together to talk about your experience and future GCA opportunities.
