We have record numbers of women running for office in 2018 because women are rising up! We have women organizing regular protests around the state – NC has weekly protests in Raleigh and Wilmington! Mostly women are protesting at the Kavanaugh hearings and around the state and country. Because Women are Rising Up NOW!
Please join us at our NC NOW State conference to meet some of these women in NC and learn some skills to help you rise up as well! Join us in Raleigh on Saturday, Oct 20, 2018, 9am-4pm.
