This month I hosted two #MacroSW Twitter Chats. For those of you unfamiliar, #MacroSW is a collaborative of individual macro social workers and organization who host a live Twitter chat every Thursday at 9:00 PM EST. The chats focus on varies issues related to macro social work practice.
This month I was pleased to host a chat featuring special guest Ashley Blanchard who talked about her experience as an intern at the Nancy A. Humphreys Institute for Political Social Work at UConn. She spoke specifically about NAHIPSW’s Campaign School which is held annually. This year Campaign School is on the road. The second half of the chat focused on the use of social media in political campaigns. You can read the chat transcript below.
