Legislative Advocacy Training

Josh Klapperick 0 367

The Social Work Code of Ethics tells us that “social workers should engage in social and political action that seeks to ensure that all people have equal access to the resources, employment, services, and opportunities they require to meet their basic human needs and to develop fully” but it’s not always easy to know where to start when it comes to putting this ethical standard into practice. Moxie Case Coach Moriah Geer MSW will provide an overview of how legislative advocacy works in Maine, including the ways that this session will be different due to the pandemic, and practical tools and tips from Maine Equal Justice’s many years of doing this work. We will take an in-depth look at some of the legislation that the NASW Maine Policy Committee has chosen to prioritize this session.
