Cheers to for this nice profile of Rep. Edophus “Ed” Towns (D-NY), who is a social worker.

Reporter Elesha Barnette had this to say about Towns:

“During his tenure in Congress, Towns has maintained a focus on improving health care services, strengthening the education system, ensuring that all communities have access to affordable housing and fighting for a responsible budget that protects Social Security, to name a few of the causes he passionately champions. “

Rep. Towns is House sponsor of the Dorothy I. Height and Whitney M. Young, Jr. Social Work Reinvestment Act. That legislation seeks to secure federal and state investments in professional social work to enhance societal well-being.
