In 2020, NC Needs To Follow Virginia’s Lead

Do you know how well Virginia has done with turning things around? They were in the same sinking terrible boat that we were in 2011 after terrible election in 2010. They are in excellent shape now, in 2020. VA has elected the most women to the VA Legislature in their history!  They’ve already passed laws to reverse some damage done AND RATIFIED THE Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)! This is a story of hope and an inspiration for people to vote. NC needs to follow their lead. That depends on us and others like us!
