The Congressional Institute for Social Work and Policy(CRISP) is a new organization that aims to draw the social work profession more intimately into the legislative process in Washington. CRISP has recently launched a website that provides a detailed description of who they are and what they do:
As social work researchers produce findings that are relevant to policy deliberations in Congress, those findings must be packaged in the form of legislative briefs and disseminated to the appropriate congressional staffers. Social work researchers must also stay aware of legislative trends and be prepared to produce research, statistics, and information that might enlighten the discussion.
They have also has graciously invited some SJS team members to attend their inaugural dinner; we will of course share our experiences of the event. In the meantime, you can checkout SJS’s previous article on CRISP or visit their website @ http://crispinc.org.
