We need to start having this conversation. As Social Workers we find ourselves working with individuals and communities on a number of issues. We have knowledge of how poverty, discrimination and abuse, and a host of other issues impact people. Yet, we are not part of the national discussion about these topics. When is the last time you saw a social worker participating in a panel on a news program? How many social workers do you know who have testified before a congressional committee? Why are there so few social workers involved in public policy?
