In the NC Women United program cycle, even years are the time when we focus on our signature project, the Women's Agenda Assemblies.
Our member organizations submit papers for the Draft Women's Agenda and communities across the state start planning their Women's Agenda Assemblies, meetings to engage women and help them practice their skills at discussing public policy issues (using the Draft Women's Agenda as a starting point).
If you're an advocate, check out the 2010 Draft Agenda to get an idea of the format. Papers need to be submitted by a member organization, but if you are not a member, perhaps one of your allies is on our member list.
If you're a community leader, consider hosting a Women's Agenda Assembly in your county. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the support the state-wide organization can provide, and view this video for an overview of the program:
To learn more and connect to "the feminist movement in North Carolina",
subscribe to our alerts e-mail list. The members of
North Carolina Women United share information about public policy issues on
their "alerts" e-mail list. We welcome all interested in our goals
to join the list.
NCWU sponsors occasional meetings to facilitate networking among our member
organizations and other interested folks. Contact
email@example.com for details. (Starting September 2010, we are also using a Facebook based calendar to highlight major events.)
Do you want to support NCWU's coalition of progressive organizations and individuals
and its work to build women's power through grassroots activism, community organizing,
legislative advocacy, and engagement in the political process?
