The Power of Social Work


members make change possible

Preserving rights.

As dedicated advocates for children’s rights, civil rights, disability rights, lesbian and gay rights, crime victims’ rights, labor rights, human rights, patients’ rights, women’s rights and many others, social workers continue to lead efforts that enhance human well-being. We shape programs and policies that strengthen individual lives and improve the society in which we live.

Strengthening voices.

Social workers also work to empower those who are frequently unheard. We open doors of access and opportunity for everyone, particularly those in greatest need. Whether we work in direct practice, administration, education and research, or policy development, professional social workers are trained to make an impact. Every day, the quality of life for millions of people is improved as they learn to use their own personal power, to build brighter futures for themselves and their families.
