Campaign School for Social Workers

The next Campaign School for Social Workers will be held February 24-25, 2023. More information to come.

A big thank you to our sponsors! 

Consider yourself asked!  The Campaign School for Social Workers is for anyone who wants to be more politically active as a candidate, staff, volunteer, and/or advocate for social change. Attendees learn from insiders and national experts who will show you that you belong in politics. Taught through the lens of the social work profession’s values and Code of Ethics, this powerful workshop addresses central issues including race, identity, and ethics.

Now in our 25th year, we have a strong network of over 2,300 alumni who serve as elected officials, leaders, advocates, and organizers. Even those who do not have any current ambition to run for office are changed by the understanding of their own political power.

Travel information
