|Subject:||Recognizing March 2016 as “National Social Work Month”|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution recognizing March 2016 as “National Social Work Month”.
As you know, the mission of social workers is to help people who need assistance with social issues. Over the past six decades, social workers have made a difference in the day-to-day lives of millions of Americans. They are the force behind many social movements that impact the lives of many across the nation.
One day is not enough to properly recognize our social workers for the skillful and
unselfish work they do 365 days a year. These compassionate women and men endeavor to make sure everyone has access to the same basic rights, protections and opportunities. To that end, it is for these reasons and more that I am proud to offer this resolution recognizing the important work these professionals provide to our citizens.
I hope you will join me in sponsoring this resolution.
