Thursday, May 18: CT bills that need our attention NOW & ERA action update

With just a few weeks left to the current Connecticut General Assembly session, there are several key pieces of legislation that need our attention NOW. Come learn which bills affecting women, children and families urgently need our voices and attention, before the session ends. You’ll leave with specific strategies and written guidelines on actions that you can immediately take to make a difference. We’ll also give you an update on NOW’s ERA ratification action plan, the current status of ERA bills in Illinois and Virginia, and what our sisters in those states need us to do to help support their efforts. Ratifying the ERA is a top priority for NOW, because equality in pay, job opportunities, political structure, education, health care and education will remain an elusive dream without a guarantee in the U.S. Constitution. An ERA would also make it significantly more difficult to roll back progress on women’s equality: an acute concern under the current administration. We at CT NOW can take a leading role in helping make ratification of the ERA a reality. Learn how by attending our April meeting on Thursday, May 18, at the New Haven Free Public Library’s Ives Performance Area (bottom floor), 133 Elm St. Come at 6 p.m. for networking. Meeting will start promptly at 6:30 pm. Please email questions to president@now-ct.org. Hope to see you there!

We’ll talk about the issues most on our minds, along with upcoming opportunities for action. You pay for your own cocktails, and we’ll pay for some great appetizers and hors d’oeuvres. Hope to see you there! Please email president@now-ct.org if you plan to attend.
