16th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect
ACYF Commissioner's Award Book
The Honorable Rick Glazier
The Honorable Rick Glazier, a member of the North Carolina House of Representatives, has been instrumental in the support of critical child welfare legislation in the State. He sponsored the Expunction Process to place North Carolina in compliance with the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) and to ensure the safety of children from individuals who have abused or seriously neglected children. To successfully move this difficult bill through the legislative process to passage required solid knowledge of the State's child welfare system.
Representative Glazier's focus always is on the best interests of the State's children, while simultaneously respecting the rights of parents and caretakers. He has worked with other members of the House of Representatives, agencies, and advocates to achieve consensus regarding the numerous bills involving child safety. A strong advocate for children and a supporter of the work of child welfare, Representative Glazier consistently and persistently challenges the State's social service system to move forward in protecting and assuring the well-being of North Carolina's children.
