The NASW-NC Legislative Committee, with approval by the NASW-NC Board of Directors, has developed the NASW-NC 2015-2016 Legislative Agenda. These items will be the focus of our advocacy efforts in the 2015 long legislative session and the 2016 short legislative session (Learn more about NC's Legislative Sessions). While we have our priorities laid out in the agenda, NASW-NC does leave room for flexibility to address legislative bills as needed throughout the legislative session.

 

If you do not see any of your issues on our agenda, let us know! We might be working on those efforts through our coalition work. NASW-NC works in conjunction with multiple coalitions throughout the legislative session. These coalition groups share similar values and may be addressing your particular advocacy concerns. Currently, NASW-NC is working on legislative agendas with:

NC Child

Coalition on Aging

The Coalition on MH/DD/SAS
Mental Health Coalition
Developmental Disability Consortium
Substance Use Disorder Federation
NC Women United

 

We value the social work voice and those of our members throughout the legislative session. Please be sure to sign up for our advocacy alerts and weekly updates so you can stay up to date during the legislative session!
