Government Relations

On May 15 CSWE in conjunction with the Congressional Social Work Caucus held an informational briefing to educate Congressional staff on the value of the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) and seek their support for increased funding in the annual appropriations bills. Congressman Edolphus Towns (D-NY), chairman of that caucus, appeared along with panelists comprised of MFP alumni, who discussed how MFP has helped them to achieve the career successes they now enjoy.
