Campbell, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2013 -- March is always a very special time of year for Social Workers because Social Work awareness, World Social Work Day, and Lobby Day all occur in the same month. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) has recently put together a publication called "100 ways to promote Social Work Month". The publication by the NASW provides many innovative ways for students and professionals to give the social work profession more visibility through media. Additionally, Lobby Day provides an opportunity for social workers to engage in the national discussion on reforming the social safety net in which they implement. Welfare and Entitlement reforms are going to happen, but they should not happen without input from the social work profession. We have seen teachers and law enforcement work to shape the debate on budget cuts to education and first responders’ jobs. However, when it comes to entitlement reforms, the social work profession has remained fairly silent until now.
On February 4th, 2013 at 8PM EST, Socialworkhelper.com will host a Live Twitter Chat using the hashtag #SWunited. The open forum will be used to discuss entitlement reforms with the public in order to gain feedback and recommendations from students, the general public, consumers and providers of social safety net programs.
The first draft is tentatively scheduled to be posted online at Socialworkhelper.com on February 22th for public review and Socialworkhelper.com is requesting any suggestions, testimonials, comments, and/or proposals be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
