These shirts are one-of-a-kind, illustrated portraits of three heroes of social work- Jane AddamsWhitney Young, and Frances Perkins. All shirts are available in multiple colors, sizes, and types (including a sweatshirt). The front features a black and white portrait of the social worker and the back has the NASW Ohio logo at the top.
