About CSSW’s 2020 Election Series
In the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, the Columbia School of Social Work is partnering with a number of organizations to offer a series of events calling on social workers to become more informed about the issues affecting the lives of ordinary people and to take the lead in empowering members of marginalized populations to vote.
