Excited about this event in Raleigh on Tuesday on saving food stamps for those who depend on them. The Farm Bill would hurt so many people.

The National Organization for Women, in conjunction with the Feminist Majority Foundation, sponsored a one – day summit and congressional briefing in DC to address sexual harassment and assault in the workplace and schools,
#EnoughIsEnough. The goal of the summit was to have speakers from all walks of life – legislators, activists, academics and survivors – explore various facets of sexual violence in workplaces and in schools. The speakers would address needed improvements in law and policy, recommendations for the most effective methods in preventing and dealing with sexual violence, and strategies to craft a more survivor-centric legal system.
The first panel was a who’s who of legal minds from national organizations! The second panel looked at state laws (see photo). The third panel was about campus safety and Title IX. The lunchtime speaker spoke about reinstating VAWA. The fourth panel focused on sexual harassment in the workplace.
Women’s Equality Day is the perfect time to get a picture of how unequal things still are for women. This documentary shows you things you may know, but also what you may not realize. Showing in August in Raleigh, Triad, Fayetteville and Asheville. On college campuses around the state in September 2017. More powerful viewing it on the big screen.
Prof. Gene Nichol really inspired a High School student who went with NC NOW to see Nichol speak on income inequality. The student wrote a paragraph on his experience which began, “I learned so much from a man I knew so little about, that man’s name was Gene R. Nichol.” Read more here.
