Virginia NOW Meets Saturday, Sept. 10, in Fredericksburg – Join Us

Virginia NOW Fall State Council Meeting
Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011
11 am to 4 pm
England Run Library, 806 Lyons Blvd., Fredericksburg

Delegate Charniele Herring Will Tell Us About the Onerous “TRAP” Law, Other Legislation, & What We As Feminist Activists Can Be Doing

Lunch will be provided. RSVPs are essential so we will know how much to order. Please indicate if you want the vegetarian option. RSVP to President Diana Egozcue at vanowpresident@hotmail.com

We have a full agenda, including:
Actions regarding to TRAP regulations (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers)

Rape on Virginia campuses – Susan Rusell, who founded UVA Victims of Rape to redress the outrageous refusal of UVA to prosecute her daughter’s rapist, will tell us about her struggle to pass legislation to break the silence of UVA and other Virginia universities over rape on their campuses.

The ERA – Get involved in Virginia NOW’s campaign to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.

Virginia NOW PAC – Our political action committee is identifying and endorsing candidates who share our values. This election cycle is urgent – anti-choice anti-equality candidates need only a few votes to take over the entire General Assembly and give Gov McDonnell and Ken Cuccinelli everything they want (and we don’t).

Title IX – Our newest campaign will collect data on discrimination in Virginia higher ed.
