Women's Issues Action Team
Our primary areas of focus in 2021-2022 include passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)in North Carolina as well as in the US Senate through SJR6 and affordable, accessible healthcare for North Carolinians, particularly women and children. We are collaborating with multiple organizations to raise awareness of the need for ERA ratification in NC and its publication to our US Constitution.
We are working with organizations throughout the state to advocate for Medicaid Expansion passage and for women’s reproductive rights. We monitor and respond to local and regional women’s issues as they arise.
