WI Chapter of National Association of Social Workers takes a stand against F-35’s

The National Association of Social Workers, Wisconsin Chapter opposes bringing F-35 jets to the Air National Guard Truax Field. NASW WI is concerned that the greatly elevated sound levels of the F-35s would negatively impact thousands of low income and diverse residents. We are also concerned about the potential impact of this sound on day care centers or schools in the area. Finally NASW WI is concerned about other environmental issues including the potential run off of PFAS in local waterways.


We would request that the federal government drop its proposal to bring the fighter jets to Dane County.
