 Illinois Counselors for Social Justice (ICSJ)

"What does your advocacy look like?" video campaign launching today, February 20th, in honor of World Day of Social Justice

For the past year ICSJ leadership has begun a campaign to give voice to those counseling professionals who are practicing advocacy efforts every day. This campaign has allowed ICSJ to showcase and celebrate the efforts of Illinois counseling professionals and we would like to share those efforts with you all. Please watch our video campaign and be inspired and motivated to continue or start your own social justice efforts.

This video shows the efforts of the Illinois Counselors for Social Justice 2017-2018 advocacy campaign. This campaign was created to spread awareness about how counseling professionals of various specializations provide advocacy services for their clients, for the counseling profession, and counselor education. Please enjoy and share this video and continue to spread awareness and engage in advocacy conversation and efforts.
