Goverment Relations- Past Legislation


    NASW-NC continues to stand up for social workers in North Carolina. Below are issues we have worked on in the past few years and resources we provided to members along the way!
  • Raise the Age: NC is the last of the states to prosecute 16 and 17-year-olds as adults in minor crimes. This has a significant impact on their future. Legislators finally changed this practice in 2017- a huge victory for our state! Raise the Age will be implemented in 2019 for youthful offenders of nonviolent felonies and misdemeanors. NASW-NC position statement on Raise the Age.
