Statement from the Texas Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers Regarding the Changes to the Social Work Code of Conduct
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) enthusiastically endorses Joe Biden for president in 2020. During his nearly 45-year career in public office, including as a U.S. Senator and Vice President, Mr. Biden has demonstrated a consistent commitment to advancing the mental health and social justice causes that are central to NASW’s mission.
Mr. Biden began his public service career as a county council member in New Castle, Del. He served in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009 and as Vice President of the United States under President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017.
While in the Senate, Mr. Biden supported the expansion of the state Children’s Health Insurance Program and much-needed improvements in mental health services for Veterans. He also played a key role in the passage of gun violence prevention legislation including the Brady background check bill and the subsequent ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. In addition, he wrote and spearheaded the original Violence Against Women Act.
