SPSSI Member Policy and Judicial Advocacy Work

SPSSI members all of over the world are involved in local, national and international personal advocacy work with strong social implications for social justice.  With experts conducting research in so many different fields, our members have the ability to aid lawmakers, non profit organizations and attorneys involved with policy and judicial matters of many different kinds.  SPSSI members testify in important court cases, provide support research for local and national legislators during the development of crucial bills, and speak at events and conferences on behalf of the social justice issues of most significance to them. 

On this page, SPSSI will routinely highlight such important advocacy work by calling attention to the contributions of as many of our members as possible.  If you or a colleague have been involved with policy or judicial advocacy in an area of social justice and would like to share your experience with us, please contact SPSSI Policy Coordinator Alex Ingrams at aingrams@spssi.org so that we can make certain to include your materials below.
