People have been protesting in front of US Senator Thom Tillis’ office in Raleigh every week since the inauguration in January 2017. Women in Wilmington protested NC Senator Thom Goolsby’s law office every Monday because of the motorcycle abortion bill fiasco in 2013. He eventually resigned. These protest make a difference. Thanks to all of the people who consistently go out to protest. We will not be ignored!
Another busy week as another House Bill brings derision to NC, a House Representative gets national attention for a very inappropriate comment, and the Republicans are abusing their power in new and worse ways.
NC is now a ‘super battleground’ state – no other state has three really critical races like NC – for president, US Senate, and Governor.
Opportunity to do some get out the vote work while sitting down at the Raleigh NOW meeting on 9/6/16.
“Equal Means Equal” is a must-see! Pulls you in right away. Do you remember these terrible quotes? Recent past, people. See the trailer here! Then see the whole documentary! Coming out official on Sept 6, 2016. Early showing on Aug 26.
NC NOW’s 7th legislative update for the short session looks at where NC can go with HB 2 from here. Adds a 7th and better option to consider.
Take a look at the pro-choice signature ad packet that NC NOW delivers to all NC Legislators. This year’s letter talks about anti-choice legislation in 2015 and about how HB 2 is disastrous for women.
NC NOW Lobbyist Robin Davis has some insight into HB 2 and the emerging battle between NC Leadership and the Federal Government.
Don’t get distracted! HB 2 is horrible for all residents of NC. North Carolina joins Mississippi as the only two states that do not offer their citizens state law protection against the most basic forms of discrimination. You may be surprised how bad it is for women.
