ALL SOCIAL WORKERS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND LOBBY DAY BECAUSE THIS IS OUR DAY TO COLLABORATE AND CELEBRATE!  You do not have to be a member of NASW-KY to attend.
Please be sure to contact your Representatives and schedule a time to meet with them between 11:00-1:00pm, and after our Rally in the Rotunda, 1:00pm-2:00pm

Please remember our voices can make a difference and it is time to engage, educate, and empower!

We will be announcing the room number for our 10:00-11:00 Advocacy Training via social media closer to Lobby Day, since room numbers can change quickly due to sessions.
