Join Social Workers at March for Science on April 22

4/6/2017
 
Demonstrate social workers’ passion, commitment, and contributions to science by participating in the March for Science on April 22.

There are plenty of ways to show your support:
  • Meet in Washington, DC—Join your colleagues on the National Mall on April 22 at 8 a.m. for a kick-off rally. The event will feature main stage speakers and several large teach-in tents where scientists, educators, and leaders from various disciplines will discuss their work, effective science communication strategies, and training in public advocacy. Find the Grand Challenges for Social Work banner (as shown above) to meet with other social workers!
  • Attend a local march—Browse satellite marches happening near you and join local social workers to march for science. No march in your city? Fill out this form to host a march in your community.
  • Virtually attend—Register here with your name and e-mail address; select Washington, DC; and choose the option to join the march digitally via livestream to show your support.  
  • Wear orange—Make social workers stand out from the crowd by wearing orange, whether a t-shirt, pants, dress, scarf, or hat.
  • Participate via social media—Follow the March for Science on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, then use #marchforscience and #socialwork during the march. Don’t forget to tag your social work partners @AASWSWorg, @CSocialWorkEd, and @nasw!
CSWE, the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare, the National Association of Social Workers, and the Society for Social Work and Research encourage all social workers to participate in the March for Science.
