Advocacy Tools

Engaging in advocacy doesn’t have to be difficult! We’ve created an advocacy toolkit to prepare you for calling and writing your legislator, lobbying at the state capitol, and to get involved in our social media campaign to generate excitement for our 2022 Social Work Lobby Day which will be in a virtual format due to COVID19.  We are busy planning this new adventure so please reach out to us if you want to be part of our Social Work Lobby Day in March 2022.

We’ve also created two videos that walk you through the the toolkit and how it can be used.

Watch a quick refresher on how a bill becomes a law and how to find your Kentucky Representatives:
