Social Work Day On The Hill

Wednesday, March 9, 2022
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST

We were planning to return to the Hill in March to celebrate Social Work Month and continue our mission to keep social workers engaged with Congress and the federal government. However, Capitol Hill remains closed to the public so we will be hosting our events virtually again this year. Because threats to our democracy remain ever-present, will continue to focus on the theme:

Social Work and the Future of Democracy

For the past three years we have focused our March events on responding to threats to democratic institutions such as free and fair elections, equal rights, and a more equitable society. We will be officially launching

The Social Work Democracy Project

11:00 AM – CRISP Policy and Politics Forum

1:00 PM – Young Social Workers Speak Panel

3:00 PM – CRISP Annual Awards Presentation Ceremony

Student Advocacy Day

We will continue our tradition of connecting hundreds of social work students with Capitol Hill to engage with the federal government through meetings with Congressional offices and staff. The day begins with a plenary session after which students will attend virtual sessions with current and former Hill staffers. There will be ongoing activities throughout the day. The day’s activities will include:

  • Opening Plenary with speakers, spoken word, presentations, and keynote speaker
  • There will be ongoing concurrent sessions on topics such as voting, digital advocacy, legislative advocacy
  • Students will attend virtual meetings with current and former Hill staffers
  • There will be a virtual Expo with sponsors and other organizations
  • Networking sessions will be ongoing
