Do you feel moved to do something about the news you’re seeing, but don’t know where to start?

Many social workers today feel called to action on political issues outside of their everyday practice. You can take the first step by attending this workshop on activism and advocacy on Friday, June 23.

Presented by NASW Ohio and the The Ohio State University College of Social Work, we will give you tools to speak up, get involved and make change on issues that matter to you.

Registration is free.  2 CEUs are available for social workers.
