At noon of Wednesday, January 10, the NC General Assembly will convene for a session in which judicial reform is expected to be a hot topic. For decades, the state's process of choosing judges has been through non-partisan elections by voters. Recently, the legislature has restored labels to party ballots in judicial races, and some top legislators are now favoring an appointive system rather than elections.
Join us to protest the proposed changes that would affect the independence of the state's judiciary. The day will begin with a press conference at Bicentennial Plaza, followed by a teach-in and training at the NC General Assembly Auditorium, and then attending lawmakers meetings, special session, and rally for fair courts. If you are in need of transportation, rides are available across the state. For more information, visit the event page here. For questions, contact Melissa Kromm via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 919-272-5447.

You're invited to a showing of Equal Means Equal
Followed by a Q&A with Gailya Paliga, President of the National Organization for Women’s Raleigh Chapter.
EQUAL MEANS EQUAL is an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. By following both real life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, the healthcare system and the legal system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws in place that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.
Actors: Patricia Arquette, Kamala Lopez, Gloria Steinem, Lakshmi Puri, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Lenora Lapidus, Ellen Chesler
Director: Kamala Lopez
Our speaker will be Miriam Amado "a Dreamer" living the nightmare issue concerning children of illegal immigrants.
