March 27, 2017 from 8:15AM to 4:00PM in the Illinois State University Alumni Center
Shaping the Narrative: Social Work Action for Engaged Citizenship hopes to be a vehicle for helping social service providers move forward. We recognize that many conference attendees need grounding for these uncertain times, as an antidote to animus of the day and as a force for continuing to do good.
