Women’s Advocacy Day has been rescheduled!
Join us on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 – register here
If you registered for the 2/24 event, we will still need you to re-register since this is a new date and time. Thank you!
- 9:30am – 11am: First Baptist Church, 101 South Wilmington St, Raleigh. (just a short walk from the legislature)
- 11am – 2pm: 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!
Make your own appointments to meet your NC reps, or join other women from your district in their visits. Our official program, including keynote speaker dream hampton, will be from 9:30am – 11am. We’ll have advocacy training, issues education and an opportunity to network with women’s organizations and advocates – hope to see you there!

What you can do today
Your visit to your legislator will be more effective if you have already started a relationship with her or him.
You can find information about who represents you and your legislators’ contact information at ncga.state.nc.us > Who Represents Me .
If your legislator isn’t new to the position, you may want to use the tools at ncga.state.nc.us > Legislation/Bills > Vote History Reports to find their record on issues such as those included in the Legislative Report Card.
