Attend Advocacy Day 


From micro to macro practice, NASW is leading the way for advocacy centered practice...

Gain a deeper understanding of how to incorporate the principals of social justice into your social work practice at NASW Ohio’s Anti-Oppression Informed Practice Certification workshops or through our Voting is Social Work initiative.

  • Anti-Oppression Informed Practice focuses on what case managers, therapists, supervisors, and other clinical workers can do to actively promote anti-oppression principles within direct practice.

  • NASW Ohio, in partnership with the Voting is Social Work campaign, actively educates social workers on the importance of political engagement both for themselves and their clients. Our Voting is Social Work workshops cover the ethical and legal guidelines for nonprofit voter engagement work, issues of ongoing voter suppression, and strategies for empowering clients in civic engagement.
