The current wave of progressive activism is a continuation of the long fight for equal dignity for all, and an affirmation that if you show up to participate in something larger than yourself, you belong – and that our visibility matters.
If you’ve ever been to a 5k, fun run, or any road race, you have seen support and inclusion in action. Even when you are at the back of the pack (speaking from experience here), everyone wants you to succeed and they cheer you on. If you show up to participate, you belong.
The Feminist 5k in Raleigh on June 17, 2017 is an opportunity to run or walk with sisters and brothers in the cause, and to increase the visibility of feminism in our culture. You can sign up at www.feminist5k.org. Proceeds benefit the Women’s Center of Wake County. There is a $5 discount for NC NOW members. Use the Promotion Code “NC NOW.” Kids 12 and under are free.
Come run/walk/roll with us.

The major outcomes sought are to prevent and to end homelessness in partnership with individuals, agencies and groups throughout the community.
