For the last twenty years, Women’s Agenda Assemblies have been hosted by small groups around the state in the fall of even numbered years. In 2012 in particular this is a good project for branches to undertake. If there’s not one already underway in your county, learn more about how AAUW NC can help you start one.
Watch for more information about how branches and members can participate in the state-wide coalition working to get out the women’s vote in 2012 and increase the power of women who represent 54% of the registered voters in North Carolina.
There’s going to be a rally in Raleigh at 1:00 on April 28 as part of the national “March Against the War on Women” effort. AAUW is encouraging members to participate in this effort. If you want to learn more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check out this flyer about the event — with links for additional information.
AAUW NC will vote on a resolution expressing its opposition to the amendment that will be on the NC primary ballot in May.
We know that there are many AAUW issues at stake in the 2012 elections. AAUW at the national level is taking the lead in get out the vote efforts — with HERVotes and the new AAUW Action Fund campaign. AAUW NC is also participating in a state-wide coalition and a networking event in Raleigh to help advance the message of the importance of women’s votes.
AAUW NC and NC MomsRising helped NC Women United add a HERVotes component to its booth at the NC Governor’s Conference for Women.
