Why get involved with PACE?

  • Elections make a difference. Elected officials create and pass policies that effect our clients and our profession. This happens on all levels, including Congress, state legislatures, county offices, city councils and school boards.
  • Social workers can have an impact on candidates with our individual votes and with our collective endorsement through PACE. 
  • Volunteering on PACE is great experience for social workers.  On behalf of NASW Ohio, committee members build crucial relationships with candidates and elected officials. 

Volunteer with PACE! 

  • Volunteering with PACE can be a large or small time commitment. Volunteers can hold fundraisers, outreach and interview candidates, inform endorsement decisions and help recruit others to PACE. Contact Colleen Dempsey ( to learn more!
