Advocacy in Action

The ethical standards of social work call for social workers to be actively engaged in advocacy for social change and social justice.  Faculty at the School of Social Work have identified and developed a number of non-partisan resources to support individuals and groups in their advocacy work.  We invite you to use and share these resources in your own advocacy efforts. 

In addition to the materials posted here, the faculty members listed below may also be available to provide consultation or training in your advocacy efforts.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions.
