Voting Is Social Work: Researchers Speak Out

Tuesday, September 13 | 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Because social workers sit at the intersection of the individual and society, we are all positioned to register people to vote and encourage civic participation. Join this panel of social work researchers as we discuss innovative ways to increase voter engagement - needed today more than ever to protect our democracy.

This program is presented in partnership with Influencing Social Policy and the Clark-Fox Policy Institute.

Register online to receive Zoom information on the morning of the event. You can also join us during the live stream.
