Sinema Honors & Recognizes Social Workers in Senate Resolution

Mar 31, 2022

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema introduced a Senate resolution recognizing March as Social Work Month to honor Arizona’s social workers as front-line workers.
“Arizona’s social workers have served on the front lines during the pandemic caring for Arizonans at their most vulnerable, and we’re proud to recognize their service,” said Sinema, a licensed social worker and lecturer at ASU’s School of Social Work.
Sinema’s resolution acknowledges and honors the unique contributions of social workers – recognizing them as front-line workers throughout the pandemic and beyond who often play critical roles in a variety of settings, such as schools, in the legal or child protective services, providing mental health and service coordination in hospitals, nursing homes, community health centers, and dialysis centers.
Sinema, a licensed social worker and a long-time lecturer at ASU’s School of Social Work, built a comprehensive social work team in her Arizona offices with specialized expertise to help connect Arizonans in crisis to emergency services, financial assistance, and other services or benefits they are eligible through coronavirus relief legislation Congress has passed.
