The first step to become an effective advocate is to register to vote and become a “Super Voter” (someone who votes in every election). Voting gives you power – state representatives and senators know they’ll need you when they run for re-election.

Become a Social Work Voter! – Register to Vote


Here are action steps you can take to become a social work activist:

  1. Learn the names and contact info for the politicians that represent you
  2. Write or call your legislator
  3. Meet with your state senator or representative
  4. Give testimony for a special bill at a State House hearing

Legislative Agenda & Priority Bills
These are the bills NASW-MA is working on hardest to get passed. Members volunteer to give testimony, write letters, and contact their legislators to advocate for priority bills.


Contact NASW-MA's Political Director with any questions or to be connected to a politically active committee or our legislative action network:
