Each year, LEAD brings together hundreds of social work students and professionals in our State capital of Trenton. The event is intended to further social work students’ knowledge of the legislative process, grassroots advocacy and major statewide policy initiatives. Attendees hear from an array of passionate speakers from the government sector, community organizers and advocates.

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, LEAD will be held virtually, but that hasn't impacted our lineup of great speakers and timely, relevant topics for discussion!

Sessions include:

  • The Legislative Process: How a Bill Becomes a Law
  • Police Reform / Violence Prevention Panel
  • Civil Disobedience & Protest as Advocacy
  • The Influence of Racism & Privilege in Social Work Education

More details about LEAD and the days agenda can be found at https://naswnj.socialworkers.org/Advocacy/LEAD
