March 21, 2023 all-day
World Social Work Day is observed every year on the third Tuesday in March. The day recognizes the hard work and diligence of social workers. On this day, a global organization of social workers advocates for social justice, human rights, and social development while promoting the best practices in social work. Social workers serve many roles in our communities. They assess their client’s and community’s needs and challenges. As advocates, they speak for their clients, get them access to the resources they need to improve their lives, and educate people about what to do in a crisis. Social workers also respond to crises.
