Social Issues Action Team
Our primary areas of focus in 2022-2023 include gender equality and health equity. We continue to work with organizations throughout the state to advocate for Medicaid Expansion passage and for women’s reproductive rights. We continue to advocate for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in North Carolina as well as in the US Senate through SJR6. 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 monitor and respond to local and regional women’s issues as they arise.
