7 Days

In 7 days, President-Elect Barack Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States. What are your hopes for the new administration? What effects do you think our new president will have on social work, social workers, and social work clients? We would like to hear your comments. Also, if you are attending the inauguration, let us know about your experience.

NOTE: Your comments may appear in a future issue of The New Social Worker.
