Legislative Action Fund

NASW Oregon Chapter hires a lobbyist each session to represent social workers and our professional values in Salem.  These values include compassion and service, social justice, and promoting the dignity and worth of all individuals.  Our legislative activities include advocating on behalf of issues related to mental health services, funding human services programs, justice reform, poverty, and civil rights.  Other issues that we are involved with are regulatory in nature, related to licensure or other practice-related issues.

Maintaining a lobbyist enables us to keep a close eye on proposed legislation and brings a voice in Salem on behalf of the social work profession and the needs of our clients.

NASW cannot do this important work without YOUR help!  Each session, we need to raise funds to continue our lobbying program, and it cannot be done without your support.  Please make your one-time or monthly donation of $100, $75, $50 or $25 or the amunt you can afford to give to assist in sustaining and stabilizing this very important program.
