Our NC state government is sponsoring a once in a lifetime event – Women Breaking Barriers – at the state Capital in Raleigh on 9/7/19. Women Breaking Barriers is part of the “She Changed The World” series of events focused on women running from May 2019 through December 2020. See the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources press release here. At the NC NOW table, we’ll be running a Women in Science Jeopardy game and selling our new NOW t-shirts. Our jeopardy game goes great with the theme, as it’s all about women who changed the world! Triad NOW will have their own table, with activities on women’s history and LGBTQ history. ERA-NC Alliance will highlight the need for ERA. The League of Women Voters – North Carolina helped organize the program and plans to do a skit, among other things. Beautiful campaign!The event runs from 10-3pm. Come on down, hear the diverse speakers, and visit our tables.
Want to help set up, table from 12-3, or cleanup? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Either way, come visit us, the event sounds very cool. And we’re selling our new t-shirts for extra incentive. Many women’s organizations and some vendors will be there.
This event is kicking off events in NC recognizing the 100th anniversary of (some) women getting the right to vote. NC NOW is leading an event for NC2020 tentatively scheduled for July 25, 2020, in Greensboro. Get that date on your calendar!
