In order to achieve our Chapter's Mission, we endorse candidates that support social work values, professional mission, and NASW-MA-endorsed legislation.
NASW-MA PACE, the political action arm of NASW-MA, endorses candidates seeking political office in Massachusetts at the local and state level. Please note that we are only involved in local races if a social worker is running.
PACE endorses candidates that support our Legislative Agenda and social work values, and supports endorsed candidates by providing them with financial or in-kind support. We also make formal endorsements of ballot initiatives and concept campaigns or initiatives. PACE is on the board of the Mass Alliance, an organization which is made up of 27 statewide agencies working together to elect progressive candidates.
Help us support our endorsed candidates by making a donation to PACE!
