HB 445 PASSED THE HOUSE!

 

We are very excited to announce that House Bill 445 has passed the PA House of Representatives with a vote of 184 to 13! Thank you to all who have contacted legislators advocating for this bill - we couldn't have done this without you! 


From here our bill will go to the Senate. We will be reaching back out in the coming weeks with updates and calls to action. Stay tuned.

Today's results will give us a momentum boost as we prepare for Legislative Education and Advocacy Day (LEAD) on April 18th, where hundreds of social workers from across the Commonwealth will be gathering to advocate for the bill. If you haven't signed up yet, now is the time to do so, as the event is approaching quickly. We need your support as we advocate for social work practice protection and diagnosis rights for LCSWs.

What would this mean for LSW's working toward their LCSW? Does it mean we can't practice?
