Women invited to discuss issues for legislature

A coalition of organizations, including Mecklenburg County’s Community Support Services’ Women’s Commission, is hoping to increase the collective voice of women in the N.C. legislature.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Women’s Agenda Assembly will be held Tuesday, Nov. 16, to discuss recommendations for changing public policies to better meet women’s concerns.

The Women’s Agenda Assembly is an organized meeting of women around the state of North Carolina that takes place in multiple counties every other year. The assembly takes place at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 E. Fourth St., in room 267. Parking is available in the Davidson Street parking deck between Third and Fourth streets. The cost is $12, and dinner is included.

During the assembly, participants will hear from local experts regarding the current status of women, girls and families in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region.  Roundtable discussions will follow.

A report outlining and prioritizing the issues will be compiled and used to advocate with the General Assembly.
