Each year, the NASW-FL Board of Directors approves its overall advocacy agenda. This agenda is a broad perspective of our overall goals for the session and what we stand for as an association. Later, as bills are filed with the Florida Legislature, this agenda will be our guide for what bills to support or oppose. It also helps direct our action when the Governor’s office or other executive agencies create new policies that impact our profession or our clients.
Response to the Court Ruling Overturning the Ban on Conversion Therapy
NASW-FL has issued a statementon a recent court ruling overturning a ban on conversion therapy for children under 18. We expect legislation banning conversion therapy to be introduced this session in the Florida Legislature.
NASW-FL will support this legislation as outlined in our 2021 Legislative Priorities. A special thanks to NASW members Allan Barsky, PhD, MSW and Fabio A. Naranjo, PhD, MSW for their input on the statement.
