Social Workers in Congress and Upcoming 2012 Election

Did you know there are seven social workers serving in the 112th Congress?
Meanwhile, I found more social work news around the web:
  • The New Social Worker celebrated Jane Addams' birthday (September 6). The magazine also published a 1998 article about the legacy of the settlement house movement (see link).
  • How do President Obama and former Governor Romney compare on important social work issues? NASW released a 2012 Presidential Candidate Position Chart on the latest social policy issues, such as children and families, jobs and the economy, and civil rights. The Chronicle of Philanthropy also released a presidential candidate position chart on nonprofit issues.
  • A full text of First Lady Michelle Obama's terrific and inspirational speech at the Democratic National Convention is now available on the Huffington Post.
