Rabb named Legislator of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers, Pennsylvania Chapter
HARRISBURG, Oct. 27 – State Rep. Chris Rabb on Monday was named the Legislator of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers, Pennsylvania Chapter.
“I am so heartened to be recognized by the National Association of Social Workers, Pennsylvania,” Rabb said. “This recognition affirms what I have known since I took office and started hearing from the people who sought help from my office: The work I do as a legislator has tremendous potential to change lives and the services that my staff in Philadelphia provides has an amazing influence over the quality of life of the people we help.”
Rabb was nominated for the National Association of Social Workers, Pennsylvania Chapter Legislator of the Year by Laurie Friedman, NASW-PA Brandywine division chair. In her nomination letter about Rabb, Friedman said that Rabb’s district, the 200th Legislative District, serves approximately 65,000 residents and, she wrote, “the majority of constituents who reach out to his office are struggling socioeconomically.” She nominated Rabb because of his “support of legislation that aligns with social work values, support in educating social work students and commitment to serving his community.”
When Rabb accepted the award during a virtual conference on Monday, he thanked his staff members, including Foluké Bennett, Danielle Duckett, Carla Johnson and Liz Blanc, as well as the “over three dozen interns and volunteers we’ve trained and welcomed into our ever-growing Team200 family.”
