Women’s Equality Day Rally and March in Moore County – 8/26/21

Women’s Equality Day events happen around the state and the country on Aug 26. Moore County NAACP-Women in NAACP and League of Women Voters – Moore County held a rally and a march.  They were joined by other allies.  They held a rally and then marched a petition over to Rep. Jimmie Boles’ office, about 3 blocks from rally.  Click here to see the petition, which was delivered on 8/26/21. Women have waited too long for equal rights by law. We need ERA NOW!
