White Papers

NBLSA will continue its participation in government regulatory advocacy through the White Paper Program. White papers are used to educate and advise on policies or legislation. The first issue NBLSA will examine will be the role school suspensions play in the School-to-Prison Pipeline. NBLSA will also address voting rights in North Carolina in the wake of the passage of a new, more restrictive voter identification law. If you would like to assist the White Paper Program, contact

Public Comments are also used to ask important questions and send comments to agencies that are drafting regulations. Each agency must be responsive to these comments and use this information to draft a comprehensive regulation. NBLSA will be drafting public comments on behalf of the organization for questions important to our communities and constituency.

"Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained."
