WE NEED YOUR ACTION TO ADVOCATE FOR OUR PROFESSION! Join us! The Washington Association of School Social Workers Legislative Action Committee (LAC) has put together a tool kit for each and every one of you to use to reach out to your Representatives!
This is a critical time in our profession as we re-emerge from the pandemic and school districts have access to funding for providing mental health services in schools. We also face an active legislative session January through April of 2022 with bills addressing the mental health crisis in schools. NOW is the time to meet with Reps to accomplish three goals:
Build a proactive relationship
Increase visibility of our profession
Partner around upcoming bills during the 2022 session (beginning in January!)
