2024 Social Work Lobby Day - 3/5/24

SAVE THE DATE!  We will begin planning the 2024 Social Work Lobby Day with our collaborative partners and interested social workers and students this summer!  For more information, please contact Brenda at brosen.naswky@socialworkers.org.  

Kentucky Proud. Social workers and students collaborating, networking, and empowering our
profession across Kentucky. Our voices. Our vision. Be the change? We are the change!

We hope you enjoy this additional mini-Tool-Kit that will be updated each year in time to
celebrate KY Social Work Lobby Day. As social workers and social work students, it is critical
to become familiar with our legislative process in the classroom and in our communities and how
it impacts Kentucky citizens. Please take some time to review each link so you can become
informed and active in Kentucky policy and advocacy. We have made it easy to access the many
different sections of the website simply by clicking ‘open hyperlink’ to explore everything you
need to know about the legislative process.

We have also included links and information about social work associations in Kentucky, as well
as links to BSW, ASWB. and CSWE. Please check out the KSWAN YouTube channel:


Gratitude to Carrie Cole, MSSW, for
creating this channel and recording the videos. KY Social Work Lobby Day is the perfect
example of social workers and students working together to keep us engaged, educated, and
empowered 365/24.
Please register for 2/22/23 Social Work Lobby Day/Rally in the Rotunda at 1pm:


NASW-KY, KSCSW, KASSW, ABSW (Bowling Green and Central Kentucky Chapters) and KASWE, are excited to be working collaboratively on our Social Work Lobby Day 2023 on Tuesday, February 22, 2023.  Due to the pandemic, we have hosted all day virtual programs with CEU's for professional and student social workers across Kentucky during 2021 and 2022.  We do hope to be in person on 2.22.23 as well as offering virtual opportunities!

We are actively engaging every college and university across Kentucky as well as professionals and agencies who would like to be involved in our planning and celebrating Social Work Lobby Day during Social Work Month. We are working on a webinar that will highlight the importance of advocacy in our profession and in our political world and will be shared with our social work students and professionals who are unable to attend our 2024 Social Work Lobby Day!
