2011 Advocacy Day Checklist

Make an appointment with your legislators if you have not already done so!

  • Find out who represents you in the House and Senate and then contact their offices.
  • We have already informed legislative offices that Women’s Advocacy Day is March 1st. If a meeting has already been set up by another constituent from your district, plan to join in. Otherwise, schedule a meeting when you call.
  • If you have a connection to parts of the state other than where you live now (i.e. the county where you grew up) please make an appointment with those legislators as well! Legislators from more conservative or rural parts of the state are often the ones that most need to hear from you!

Review the NC Women United website for information on pending or anticipated legislation that will impact women and their families in North Carolina.

  • The 2011 North Carolina Women’s Legislative Agenda and talking points pertaining to these bills will be posted on www.ncwu.org by Friday, February 25, 2011.

Make plans to arrive at the General Assembly (located at 16 W. Jones St., Raleigh) before 9:00am.

Wear green!

  • To show our strength and make sure that legislators know who we are and why we’re there, wear green to help them recognize Women’s Advocacy Day participants as one large and powerful group!
  • No Green? No worries! We have stickers and buttons for all.
