We held our second Silent Sentinels vigil after Women’s Advocacy Day (WAD), April 21, 2015, at 2pm.  “Fearless” Carla Cunningham, primary sponsor of this bill, emceed part of the WAD press conference.  She introduced Robbie Madden, from Ratify ERA NC, to talk about the need for an Equal Rights Amendment.

We held this second Silent Sentinels vigil to encourage Judiciary I to move the House ERA bill (H166) along. This time our vigil was in the Legislative Building, in front of office 1013, in front of the Vice Chair of Judiciary I’s office.  Last time it was in front of the Chair of Judiciary I’s office.
