EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT CONFERENCE SCHEDULED OCT. 24 IN GREENSBORO
“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” is the attitude of many legislative and congressional leaders regarding equal rights for women and men.
To overcome resistance, ignorance, and apathy on the part of many political leaders, advocates of the Equal Rights Amendment are invited to participate in a statewide conference, “The ERA—Give a Damn” on October 24. RATIFY ERA-NC, a statewide organization dedicated to making the ERA part of the U.S. Constitution, is sponsoring the program, which will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Congregational United Church of Christ, 400 W. Radiance Drive in Greensboro.
Featured speakers are North Carolina Rep. Carla Cunningham and Sen. Floyd McKissick, ERA primary sponsors; and NAACP leader Melinda Lowrance. The program will include strategy planning sessions and lunch.
Reservations are required and must be made by October 16. Fee is $15 (includes lunch). To register, send contact information and check, payable to RATIFY ERA-NC, to
RATIFY ERA-NC, P.O. Box 758, Black Mountain, NC 28711. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
