The NC General Assembly (NCGA) is back in session, and it’s more important than ever for women to speak up against the Carolina ROLLBACK.  As veteran teachers continue to be short-shifted, and attacks on the UNC public university system are rampant! With this bi-annual Women’s Advocacy Day event, we’re making it easy to speak your mind, including some training to help you make your points.

Writer, film-maker and social justice organizer Dream Hampton is going to keynote the Women’s Advocacy Day event next Tuesday, but also will speak at an associated reception on Monday night. Hampton has written about music, culture and politics since 1990.  Read more about Hampton at http://www.dreamhampton.com/bio/

  1. This event was postponed due to weather. The reception on 2/23/15 was lovely and important. Rep. Cunningham had a big announcement for women – that ERA will be introduced in NC soon. More on that in a separate post.
