Lobby Days, March 12th & 13th in Sacramento
Students from the SWSA attended Legislative Lobby Days, March 12 and 13 in Sacramento.
Lobby days was a whirlwind of hearing personal stories relating to the bills NASW had chosen, learning how to be most effective while lobbying, and discovering that we have the strength to do so with confidence and clarity. I was very proud of the students who lobbied with me to District 2 Assembly Member Jim Wood, as the conversation was continuous and heart felt. The time spent with my peers and classmates this past weekend will never be forgotten. - Elizabeth Morgan, BASW Class of 2017
I cannot say enough about this incredible group of students. Lobby Days was amazing and inspiring. Seeing hundreds of social work students get fired up about mental health, immigration, and LGBTQIA bills not only warmed my heart, but inspired me. At the conference we were told that "Social Workers are the conscious of America" and that "Social Workers Can Change the World". I know, for a fact, that Humboldt State University's Social Work students will indeed change lives and the world. - Jovonne Dempster, Lecturer and Lobby Days group leader
