2. Wednesday, Oct 20, noon – rally and letter delivery to legislators in NCGA

Some of the women’s marches had people write notes on hangers at their women’s marches on Oct 2. The Charlotte Women’s Movement group came up with the idea and shared it around. Women Organizing for Wilmington did some at their event. Raleigh NOW did some at the Raleigh event. Other women’s marches did also.

A group from Charlotte and I believe a group from Wilmington are driving to Raleigh on Oct 20 so we can rally with the hangers, and deliver a letter to all of the legislators in the NC House and NC Senate. We are meeting on the lawn in front of the Legislative Building at 16 W. Jones St at 11:45am.

We also want to deliver a letter demanding legislators support Roe v. Wade to all of our legislators.
