The National Association of Social Workers North Carolina Chapter (NASW-NC) is a membership organization devoted to the social work profession. NASW-NC promotes, develops, and protects the practice of social work and social workers. NASW-NC also seeks to enhance the well-being of individuals, families, and communities through its advocacy. Capital punishment and the death penalty undermine the ability of professional social workers working within the criminal justice system to enhance a client’s capacity and opportunity for ongoing change. NASW-NC believes in the inherent dignity and worth of every individual. NASW-NC supports the abolition of the death penalty and an immediate mortarium on executions for those already sentenced. NASW-NC supports restorative justice programs that support the belief in the possibility for change and an option for rehabilitation and restoration.
