Political Action For Candidate Election Committee - PACE
Co-Chairs: Joan Serrano Laufer & Alicia Fry
Field Organizer: Stella Padnos-Shea, LMSW
Meets the second Wednesday of every month.
NASW-NYC PACE is the independent political arm of the Chapter. PACE identifies qualified candidates running for local and state offices and garners support for them among the Chapter membership. PACE endorses candidates who espouse social work values and who work to promote both professional goals, such as loan forgiveness and licensing, and client centered goals such as mental health parity and repeal of the Rockefeller Drug Laws. Through funding from a small voluntary portion of annual membership dues, NASW-NYC PACE is able to contribute to candidates. NASW-NYC PACE also mobilizes social workers to participate in political campaigns through the use of social work skills including planning, organizing, motivating, and working within systems. The Committee’s mission includes educating and involving social workers in the political process. NASW-NYC PACE generally meets at the Chapter office from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
