Equal Means Equal Documentary

  • Smithfield Library | 2nd floor Multipurpose Meeting Room (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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 By following both real life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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

voters about the duties and responsibilities of JoCo Town Councils and
County Commissions.

This educational event is free and open to the public. It is not
affiliated with any political candidate or party.

DWJC Monthly Meeting

This month, our featured speakers will be Dawn Blagrove, Director, and Tessa Hale, Assistant Director, from the Carolina Justice Policy Center. They are dedicated to empowering North Carolinians to create effective, equitable and humane solutions to criminal justice problems. This is a presentation you definitely won't want to miss!

"The Carolina Justice Policy Center is embarking on an issue driven GOTV campaign centered around educating voting populations on important criminal justice issues, specifically, mass incarceration, the over use of the death penalty, and building strong policies around raising the age. Our campaign involves educating voters on the issues, the current state of the issue in their community, and most importantly the stance of candidates on these issues. The goal is to increase the turnout of well informed and educated voters with the potential to help align elected officials with the ideology and criminal justice reform policies important to the community in which the voter lives. The presentation also includes basic information on voting education." 

Our meetings are open to the public, so even if you're new to the area or to the Party, we'd love for you to come check us out! We even have snacks!!

You don't even have to RSVP for the monthly meeting - we know you will want to be there!
