NC NOW, Triad NOW and ERA-NC Alliance were among the 53 organizations and businesses at the Women Breaking Barriers – at the State Capital in Raleigh on 9/7/19. This event was organized and sponsored by the NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (NCDNCR). It was a kick off for a series of events marking the 100 year anniversary of women winning the right to vote. The League of Women Voters helped organize the program and did a skit, among other things. There were opportunities to participate and learn about inspirational North Carolina women past and present – through speeches, skits and activities at tables on the grounds. The event ran from 10-3pm.
