For social work month, the Congressional Research Institute for Social Work and Policy (CRISP) will hold its first web-based, annual donor drive from March 3rd – March 9th. Financial contributions will help ensure social work representation and involvement in federal legislative processes and public policy. For $10, donors will receive 3 CRISP newsletters. Donors that make $25 contributions will receive 3 newsletters and access to the organization’s 2014 symposium. Please Donate Now http://crispinc.org/donate/
The organization was created in 2012 as an independent, nonpartisan 501(c)4 organization that recognized the importance of the Congressional Social Work Caucus and sought to complement its mission. Former Congressman Edolphus “Ed” Towns, who founded the Congressional Social Work Caucus during the 110th Congress in 2010, assisted in the creation of CRISP and holds the position as its Board Chair.
CRISP works to: (1) act as a bridge between social work researchers and the federal government to ensure their research is known to federal policy makers; (2) expand opportunities for students to find field placements in federal government offices both on Capitol Hill and in offices near their schools; and (3) employ strategies to raise social workers’ awareness about the federal legislative process through seminars, conferences and webinars.
