ISP Influencing Social Policy Past Events Voting Is Social Work

Social Work Responds to the Election

Thursday November 17, 2022
12:30pm-2:00pm CST; 1:30pm-3:00pm

A panel of political social workers will discuss outcomes from the 2022 midterm elections and their implications for social workers, our constituents, and the nation. We will look at voting patterns by various segments of the population (e.g. gender, ethnicity, age, education, etc.). We will also discuss what we might anticipate from Congress based on which party is in control of the House and the Senate.
