The Civic Engagement Educational Series seeks to provide a space for political education within the social work field. It is a partnership between Columbia University's Action Lab and Social Work Votes. As a non-partisan effort that incorporates the social work Code of Ethics, the town halls are designed to cultivate conversations amongst social workers and experts in various fields. These events are open to all Columbia University students and affiliates, social worker students from other institutions, social workers from across the country and world, and the general public.
Featuring panelists Jaime Estades from the Latino Leadership Institute, Ivan Garcia, Political Director for Make the Road Action, and Dr. Charles Lewis from the Congressional Research Institute for Social Work and Policy (CRISP).
