Two sets of workshops are planned at the NC NOW NOW State Conference on 11/9/19 in Uptown Charlotte – one set in the morning and one set in the afternoon. Read about them in this post. You can preregister for the conference and for the workshops here. Some workshops may need to be capped due to space and other considerations, so preregistering will secure your spot.

“Ladies all across the world
Listen up, we’re looking for recruits
If you with me, lemme see your hands
Stand up and salute
Get your killer heels, sneakers, pumps or lace up your boots
Representing all the women, salute, salute.”
“Salute” by Little Mix
Audrey Muck aptly chose this song as accompaniment to her update on the ERA, inspiring us to dance in and out of our seats – much needed during the 2pm time slot! The Women Rising Up NOW! 2018 State Conference couldn’t have come at a better time for me personally: deeply discouraged by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, following two back to back trips to Washington DC to join the “angry mob” of dedicated women, survivors and allies from across the country in bird-dogging, direct actions, and speak-outs at the U.S. Senate and at the Supreme Court, I missed the company of kindred spirits acutely.
