PACE Committee

Political Action for Candidate Election (PACE) is the political “arm” of NASW. Members of the Vermont chapter committee meet throughout the election cycle to discuss support for candidates in state and local races. We assess individual candidates via survey and/or their voting records and may interview. The committee decides the level of candidate support based on several criteria, including issues the candidate supports or opposes, the viability of the campaign, and available resources. Supports can include a written endorsement, a financial contribution, and/or campaign assistance such as letter writing and phone calls. Candidates who are social workers and members of underrepresented groups are given special consideration. 

Please consider joining the PACE committee. A diverse membership is important to NASW-VT PACE. Although we align with the policy positions of NASW and NASW-VT, local perspective is valuable.
