** POSTPONED: MACRO Conference 2.0 **

** The planning partners of MACRO Conference 2020 are following the advice of the U.S. Department of State and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and have made the difficult decision to postpone MACRO Conference 2020 & the Teaching Institute until 2021. Please know that our first priority is the health, safety, and well-being of everyone involved. Please continue to check the website for updated information. All your questions will be answered soon. **


MACRO Conference 2.0 and the Teaching Institute are expanding to include a broader MACRO focus! Influencing Social Policy (ISP) presents MACRO Conference 2020, The Power of MACRO Social Work: Forging Pathways Toward a More Just and Equitable World, in collaboration with ACOSA, Clark-Fox Policy Institute, Special Commission to Advance Macro Practice in Social Work, and other Macro Partners.

We are excited to invite you to join us in 2020 on Thursday, May 28; Friday, May 29; and, Saturday, May 30! The Macro Teaching Institute is a full day event that will precede the opening of the conference on May 28, 2020 from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. The conference runs from Thursday, May 28 at 5:30PM to Saturday, May 30 at 2:00PM. We are pleased to once again be hosted by the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis.

We recognize that Missouri is one of a growing number of states that is passing legislation aimed at restricting and/or eliminating access to safe abortion services. The growing barriers to reproductive health care on the state and federal level are of great concern to many in our community. In response to recent legislation in Missouri and in fulfillment of our professional commitment to advance social, economic, environmental and political justice, we will be identifying ways in which conference and institute participants may become involved in supporting the local community in their efforts to combat restrictions to sexual and reproductive health care. In addition, we are developing a list of local businesses who share our values and commitment to the pursuit of social justice and equity.

We hope you will mark these dates on your calendar and we look forward to seeing you in 2020!
