Humphrey's Institute for Political Social Work 2023 Campaign School for Social Workers at University of Connecticut. Red ribbon in right hand corner, with glistening shimmer, reading the quote "politics is social work with power- Senator Baraba Mikulski." Backdrop in the top header is a light orange with red letters reading Campaign Leadership · Supporting BIPOC, LGBTQ  · FUNDRAISING · Voter Engagement · Communications and Outreach · Perspective and Knowledge · Campaign Strategy. In the middle of the page in black text with a white backdrop, politics affects everything we do as social workers and citizens. Yet, it can also feel overwhelming and a game for insiders only. The Campaign School for Social Workers is for anyone who wants to be more politically active as a volunteer, advocate, and/or candidate to amplify their impact. You will learn from political social workers and national experts why YOU belong in politics. The time is now to take your seat at the table. Therefore.... Consider yourself asked! (in big, crimson red, bolded letters). A light orange line to separate this section, and below it reads, DAY ONE TOPICS INCLUDE: political campaign basics, fundraising, digital & mail communications, leadership. DAY TWO TOPICS INCLUDE: What it's like to run and serve, social work & democracy, difficult conversation, supporting diverse power & representation, ethics. To the right, there is a QR code where you can easily register by scanning there or visiting s.uconn/cs2023. On the lefthand margin, on top of a soft gray backdrop shares the information that the event will be held on February 24 & 25th, Friday will be 8:30 am to 4 pm, Saturday will be 8:30 am to 3 pm at The Hartford Club in Hartford, Connecticut. A red and white checkered line to separate the sections. In bold, red letters, below the section breaker it reads Registration Opens December 5th.
