Advocacy Update, March 30th, 2015
Kay Castillo, Director of Advocacy, Policy, and Legislation
What a week! We had over 500 social workers attend Social Work Advocacy Day on Wednesday, March 25th. This was an incredible opportunity for social workers and social work students to meet with legislators and discuss priority issues. We hope you all enjoyed the event and will use the opportunity to continue relationships with your legislators as they develop important policy that impacts our profession.
Last week also marked the Senate filing deadline- any bills the Senate plans to work on this legislative session had to be filed. Close to 200 new bills popped up including ones addressing Medicaid Reform and children in foster care. The House has until April 15th to get bills filed.
