IT’S TIME TO REGISTER

Bennett V is coming soon – July 30, 2016, Bennett College, Greensboro

We are thrilled to announce that Mandy Carter, Nobel Prize nominated social justice activist, will be our keynote speaker.  Mandy has spent her life as a movement organizer including helping co-found Southerners on New Ground (SONG) and the National Black Justice Coalition.

This is shaping up to be our best Bennett conference yet.  We will be rolling out our WHY VOTE initiative and beginning our 2016 letter writing campaign.  The morning will be filled with a panel discussing critical issues important to women and then participants will have an opportunity to interact in small groups directly with the panelists.

The afternoon will be filled with how-to work sessions with practical application to our organizational efforts.
This is your chance to get connected with other leaders and activists and up-to-date on what’s important as we organize women and get out the vote in this crucial 2016 election.

The complete agenda will be available July 14.

BENNETT V – ISSUES AND ACTIONS

THIS WILL BE OUR YEAR!

JULY 30, 2016 BENNETT COLLEGE, GREENSBORO, NC
REGISTER NOW

Yes, indeed, this will be the fifth Bennett Conference sponsored by NC Women Matter and it promises to be the best.  This year could not be more important. Women will be electing a president, governor, council of state, US senator, and an entire general assembly.  Women will also be electing county commissioners and some districts will be electing boards of education.  Yes, Women will be electing all of these key officials who determine much of what is important to women and families across the state.

Women represent 54% of the registered voters in this state and as we should know, if women vote in the interest of themselves and their families, great things will happen.

Bennett V is an important step in the direction of these great things happening.  Bennett V is our opportunity to meet, get inspired, network with other women leaders and activists, get briefed on critical issues and learn new skills.  More detailed information will be coming in the next couple of weeks.

This year, in particular, we will be rolling out our women-to-woman letter writing campaign and we will get introduced to our “Why Vote Guide for Women” and our brand new Why Vote web site.

Plan to bring materials from your organization to share.

Check-in will begin at 8:30 with a continental breakfast.  The program will begin promptly at 9:00 and will conclude no later than 4:30.  Lunch will be served.  There is a $10 registration fee per participant.  Registration is open now.

Register Today for March 5th Discussion on Gender Gap in Greensboro

Good afternoon friends,

On March 5, the faith community, labor groups and local partners will bring together stakeholders from a variety of organizations to discuss how the gender gap creates opportunities to organize more power across organizations and allies in the states. By aligning ourselves around a common set of values, power analysis and vision, economic justice, reproductive justice advocates and the faith communities can build enough power and create enough demand for the kind of systemic change that makes equality more possible for everyone and that finally addresses the long-standing inequities that deny women, particularly low-income women and women of color, a fair opportunity to succeed.

Please make your calendar and share with your networks for this one of a kind forum that will be taking place on March 5, 10am-4pm at Saint Matthews United Methodist Church 600 E. Florida Street, Greensboro.  For questions and to register for the forum, contact Carolyn Smith at 336-292- 4178 or email csmith@workingamerica.org. Registration is limited so please register early.
