Loyola MSW Students participate in Advocacy Day 2018
On April 11, 2018 over 1,000 social workers and social work students from across the state attended a half day of educational seminars on lobbying in Illinois. The afternoon was spent lobbying at the Capitol and meeting with legislators about social work related issues. Our efforts helped us get one of our major bills passed out of committee, HB 5122, Foster Youth Tuition and Fee Waivers. Over 50 Loyola students, staff and faculty made the trip to Springfield to let their voices be heard! Advocacy is an integral part of the social work profession and this is a great opportunity to get involved!
