Women’s Advocacy Day is an event at the NC Legislative Building at 16 W. Jones St., Raleigh.
Expect information on bills before the legislature that will affect NCWU priorities in the areas of
- Access to Health Care
- Civic Participation and Equality
- Economic Self Sufficiency
- Violence Against Women
The day will include training on the specific “hot” issues in these four areas as well as tips for effective lobbying. But the most important part of the event is the visits you make to your legislators!
