With the support of the Fund for Social Policy Education and Practice, a coalition is being established of major social work and social work education organizations to achieve collective impact to advance policy advocacy and policy practice in social work education and professional development.  Through these activities, we aim to elevate the role of social workers in furthering equity and social justice through local, state and national public policy efforts.

The current list of organizations represented on the Coalition include: the Association of Baccalaureate Program Directors (BPD); the Congressional Research Institute on Social Work and Policy (CRISP); the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE); the Grand Challenges Executive Committee of the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare (AASWSW); the Fund for Social Policy Education and Practice (FSPEP); Influencing Social Policy (ISP); the National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work (NADD); the National Association of Social Workers (NASW); the Network of Social Work Management (NSWM); the Special Commission on Macro Practice of the Association of Community Organization and Social Administration (ACOSA); the Race, Ethnicity and Poverty Network (REAP Centers); and the Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR).
