NC NOW members delivered the NC NOW pro-choice signature ad packets to all of our representatives in the NC House and NC Senate on Wednesday, April 14, 2021. The packets included a letter from NC NOW on bills related to abortion access that we support and oppose, and this year we delivered two copies of the ad in each packet. Due to the pandemic and safety concerns, we did not deliver in 2020. See NC NOW’s letter below and see more about the ads below. The eight members delivering the signature ad packets represented Fayetteville NOW, Chapel Hill NOW, Raleigh NOW, and Durham NOW. There were two other groups of people who got the signature ads ready to go the previous weeks.
The two ads we included in the pro-choice signature ad packet were as follows.
- The 2021 ad in red featuring the original portrait of Ruth Bader Ginsburg that was made by artist Kathy Kos. See the red 2021 ad here. Read about artist Kathy Kos here.
- The 2020 ad in blue featuring a picture of NOW members protesting at the Raleigh Stop The Bans rally in 2019. See the blue 2020 ad here.
The letter focused on bills regarding abortion access. See the letter below.
The NOW members from the Triangle went to eat together at Raleigh Times Restaurant afterward.
