Constitution Day is the perfect time to educate Americans that women are not equally protected under our constitution, and about what could remedy that. The Equal Means Equal documentary shows how women and girls are treated in multiple areas. Actions you can take to move legal fairness along.
If you have not seen this important documentary, Equal Means Equal, now is your chance! If you’ve only seen it once, you may want to see it again. It shows us the real situation of women in the United States. Very intense. We will discuss afterward.
“Living without health insurance is like playing Russian Roulette with your life.” Jesse, Moore County. All over our State, many North Carolinians are unable to get the medical care they need because they don’t have any health coverage. Rebecca Cerese, the Health Engagement Coordinator for the NC Justice Center, amplifies their stories, in hopes of creating real policy change. She will be sharing some of these stories and discussing ways we can work together to fix this problem.
Feminist documentaries to see, including “Seeing Allred” (about women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred), Equal Means Equal, RBG, Trapped, and more.
The January, February and March 2019 newsletter is available. January and February have been a whirlwind of activity – 6 women’s marches around the state, getting people to other marches, NC NOW’s annual pro-choice signature ad, and organizing other events and advocacy days. Also, strong reactions to administration activities and lawmakers.
NC NOW members attended an ERA Advocacy Day at the Legislative Building and Legislative Office Building in Raleigh on Wednesday, 1/30/19. Women delivered two things to each legislator – a letter from the ERA-NC Alliance and Legalize Equality, a 30 minute DVD which makes the case for ERA. Great timing since January 30 was the legislators’ first day back and many legislators, or at least their assistants, were available.
