Advocacy, an Essential Social Work Skill: A Special Opportunity to Learn From a Current Practitioner

Monday, March 8
5 – 6 p.m.

The social work profession is founded on advocacy. Are you passionate about sharpening your skill set to become a more effective change-maker?

Take this opportunity to learn from one of the best. On Monday, March 8, at 5 p.m., Nora Moran, L.M.S.W., director of policy and advocacy at United Neighborhood Houses (UNH), will present on advocacy skills for social workers.

Join us for a night of discussion and learning. This event will be a space for GSS students to continue their pursuit of how to give a voice to the voiceless.

About the Speaker: Nora Moran returned to UNH in May 2019 to lead UNH’s policy and advocacy team. In her role as director of policy and advocacy, Moran supervises UNH’s policy team, analyzes government policies and budgets, mobilizes support for funding and policies, and lobbies at both the state and city levels to support critical services that include child care and early childhood education, after-school and youth development programs, ESOL and legal services for immigrants, mental health services, and services to support older adults. Prior to rejoining UNH, Moran served as a policy director at Safe Horizon, the nation’s leading victim assistance organization, and was a senior policy analyst for aging and behavioral health at UNH. She has a Master of Social Work degree from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College and a bachelor’s degree from Fordham University.
