GoodLaugh, a program of CMSI, combines humor, social justice, and entertainment to create comedy that addresses social issues, believing in the power of “laughing in the face of injustice.” The Arkansas chapter of the National Association of Social Workers represents and advocates for social workers in the state, working to enhance professional standards and advance sound social policies.
