Some organizations and organizers collected notes for legislators on hangers at the women’s marches held around the state on Oct 2, 2021. The Charlotte Women’s Movement group came up with the idea, as did some individuals. Women Organizing for Wilmington had a hanger station at their Pro-Abortion Women’s March and Rally event, as did Charlotte Women’s Movement and Raleigh NOW at the Raleigh Women’s March and Rally. Other women’s marches did also. On Oct 20, Women from Raleigh and Charlotte set up a display with hangers and delivered a letter which demanded legislators support Roe v. Wade.
This post includes 5 upcoming events this week – the Raleigh NOW October Meeting on Oct 19, Rally and letter delivery at Legislative Building on Oct 20, Affordable Housing meeting on Oct 21, ERA-NC Alliance Annual Meeting on Oct 23, and Politica NC Census Slam event on Oct 23. Attend any or all!
