The Time For Justice Is NOW: NC NOW State Conference on 11/9/19
Raleigh, NC – There are many examples of injustice around us: women’s health being targeted, disparities in school suspensions along racial lines, women’s reports of sexual assault and harassment being discounted, treatment of migrants and immigrants, mass incarceration of minorities, underpayment for women’s work, re-segregation of our schools to name just a few. NC National Organization for Women is working on some of these issues at our annual conference on Saturday, November 9, 2019, in Charlotte.

“Speak Truth To Power NOW” was the theme of the 2018 National NOW Conference held in San Jose California from Jul 6-Jul 8, 2018. NOW members came from around the country to attend. The conference included many plenaries and workshops. There also was a PAC discussion luncheon, full of more fabulous speakers. My single favorite experience was meeting Attorney Gloria Allred after a screening of new documentary “Seeing Allred” which we hope to show in NC soon! My favorites speakers out of many exciting speakers were Feminist Majority founder Ellie Smeal and Nevada Senator Pat Spearman, who was instrumental in ratifying ERA in Nevada. Both of these women have come to North Carolina in the past – and I would say – follow them anywhere!
