Why You Want to Attend...

Elections are part of our larger national and local dialogues about the meaning of inclusion and exclusion in shaping our identity and values. This series of three events will explore if, how, and why elections matter. If they matter — to what purpose? How can elections be used to effect change? What are some of the differences between working at the local, state, and national levels? What are the forces that impact our ability to participate in elections as voters, candidates, and social workers who seek to shape our society?

This Fall 2020 Social Justice Lecture series is co-sponsored by the Social Work Community Outreach Service (SWCOS), Macro Curriculum Committee, Policy Sequence, the Community Action, and Social Policy Specialization, and the Office of Continued Education.
