Social workers are critical in advocating for just policies, holding public offices, and helping people exercise their voting rights. This webinar highlights the importance of voter registration and voting both generally and for our roles as social workers, and provides practical information on voter registration, voting, and how to help commonly disenfranchised groups better participate in our elections. Join social workers and students from across Illinois for this nonpartisan discussion to learn more about what you can do to advance voting participation.
Free and open to the all.
