National Association of Social Workers Mass. Chapter Endorses Kathleen Kelly for Re-election

National Association of Social Workers Massachusetts Chapter – Political Action for Candidate Election (NASW MA PACE)

The National Association of Social Workers Massachusetts Chapter – Political Action for Candidate Election (NASW MA PACE) has endorsed Kathleen Kelly in her re-election bid for Cambridge School Committee. NASW MA Chapter is the largest social work organization in the state with 7,000 members.

NASW’s political action arm endorses candidates with a solid and proven commitment to promoting social and economic justice as well as providing unimpeded access to services for all citizens. Social workers advocate for policy priorities and legislation that strengthen the social work profession and the social safety net for vulnerable populations on the local and state level.

Kathleen’s work in Cambridge schools has been extraordinary, especially in working to incorporate the Social-Emotional Learning initiative, both of which are supported by NASW-MA and PACE. She has been a staunch advocate for the children of Cambridge when it comes to mental health issues as well as concerns about trauma exposure and how it can make learning inaccessible. Kim Hokanson, PACE Chair said, “Kathleen has taken the priority issues of school social workers and brought them to her community to discuss and resolve; we are proud of the work she has accomplished thus far.”

Kathleen has been a dedicated member of the National Association of Social Workers MA Chapter and the PACE committee is excited to endorse her again for this office. We encourage all Cambridge members to give Kathleen their #1 vote for school committee on November 7th. To learn how you can help with the campaign, please e-mail Kathleen@kathleenmkelly.com.
