Students, faculty, and staff at the College of Social Work will travel to the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort on Thursday for Social Work Lobby Day.

The daylong event will include committee meetings, conversations with legislators, and networking with social work professionals and students from across the state. Rally in the Rotunda, hosted by the Kentucky Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers, will be at 1 p.m.

In 2018 approximately 100 UK students participated in the annual event which encourages advocacy for the social work profession.
