2014 NASW Illinois PAC Endorsemets


November election vital to human services

Chicago, IL—The crucial upcoming 2014 November election will greatly impact social work and human services in Illinois. Elected leaders will make decisions regarding funding along with a vast array of services that help our communities. Therefore it is important to elect leaders who support policies that are consistent with the social work profession.

Supporting responsible candidates is one of the main goals of the NASW Illinois Chapter Political Action Committee (NASW IL PAC). The PAC is separately incorporated and supported by NASW member contributions, not association dues. The candidate selection process is member-driven, with social workers engaging with incumbents and candidates throughout the state. In addition to candidate endorsements, the PAC adamantly promotes political education and participation by social work professionals in the electoral process.

The NASW Illinois PAC is proud to announce the following candidate endorsements:

Governor: Pat Quinn

Attorney General: Lisa Madigan

Secretary of State: Jesse White

Treasurer: Michael Frerichs

The NASW IL PAC is the nonpartisan political arm of the National Association of Social Workers Illinois Chapter.  As a political action committee, the NASW IL PAC endorses and financially contributes to candidates from any party who support NASW’s policy agenda. The national NASW Political Action for Candidate Election (PACE) Board endorses and contributes to federal candidates running for U.S. House and Senate seats; the NASW IL PAC is responsible for endorsement decisions in local and state races in Illinois.
