Jan Allen Day Declared in Chapel Hill on 9/3/15

Jan Allen has received many awards for her work to champion reproductive rights over the years. She is a lifetime member of NC NOW, but she also co-founded Lillian’s List in 1997. Lillian’s List does active recruiting, training and supporting of progressive pro-choice woman candidates. Because of her successful work, September 3, 2015 was declared “Jan Allen Day” by the Town of Chapel Hill! 

Jan received that honor for all of the work that she has done to champion reproductive freedom in North Carolina. Jan received the Susan Hill Award from Naral in 2013.

Jan will be recognized again at the “Sharing Our Stories” event on 3/31/17, in Durham NC.

When Jan’s 80th birthday was celebrated at a Lillian’s List Chapel Hill Reception, Secretary of State Elaine Marshall introduced Jan. Secretary Marshall said, “There is not a more dedicated feminist or champion of reproductive freedom in the entire state than Jan Allen!”

Jan’s work shows the powerful change people can enact on their community if they just try. Thank you, Jan!
