2011 Women's Advocacy Day is March 1st

Join NCWU in Raleigh on Tuesday March 1, 2011 for the 2011 Women’s Advocacy Day. We are pleased to announce that the advocates from across North Carolina will be joined by Lilly Ledbetter, plaintiff in the 2007 Supreme Court case Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire and Rubber, and namesake of the “Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.” Lilly Ledbetter is a representative of why we, as women, work together on a wide range of issues. Come hear her story and be inspired to continue to work on issues affecting women and their families.
