The keynote speaker for North Carolina NOW’s 2019 State Conference is state Representative Deb Butler, who represents downtown Wilmington and parts of Brunswick County.
Rep. Butler gained national attention for her impassioned rebuke of House Speaker Tim Moore after he called for a vote on Governor Cooper’s veto of the state budget during a session that Democrats and the media had been told would be a non-voting session. Republican representatives, by contrast, had been told to “be in your seats.”
We invite you to join us on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, in Raleigh to support our North Carolina legislators, who are filing the bills necessary to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution. Here in North Carolina, we have the historic chance to bring equal rights to every citizen of the United States of America. North Carolina can be the 38th of 38 states needed to ratify the ERA. You can help! Here are 10 ways the ERA can make a difference!

We will gather at the North Carolina General Assembly, 16 West Jones Street in Raleigh, at 12:30 p.m. We need as many volunteers as we can get to show our legislators that North Carolinians support this important step forward in American history. Hope to see you in Raleigh.
