NASW-AZ Annual Lobby Days

Educating the next generation of advocates is core to our values as a profession and chapter. Each year, we host our annual Legislative Education & Advocacy Day (LEAD) day which brings together hundreds of social work students and professionals from across the state virtually. 

LEAD is designed to further social workers’ knowledge of the legislative process, grassroots advocacy, and major current statewide policy initiatives. Attendees learn from an array of passionate speakers from elected officials, the government sector, community organizers, and advocates.
