Equal Rights Amendment Presentation at County Commmisioners
The first Monday of each month at 7:00 pm
Meetings are held on the second floor in the Craven County Commissioners Meeting Room at the Craven County Administration Building, New Bern, North Carolina. This building is located on the corner of Craven and Broad Street next to the Shriners building (near the traffic circle, downtown).
It is our hope that you will attend these meetings wearing purple. We ask you to bring a friend, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend or anyone who believes women should have equal rights. You do not have to speak. We need you to show up.
We would love to have multiple speakers. If you would like to speak, you will need to come around 6:30 and sign up. Speakers are called in the order that they signed in. Statements are limited to 4 minutes, so plan for 4 minutes or less. If you have any questions about speaking at the meeting, please message our Facebook page. We will go back monthly and make our case repeatedly in a reasonable, knowledgeable manner. We need to make sure that the Commissioners know we are in the county, we are assertive, and WE VOTE! Hope to see you there! Let's have such a crowd that we fill the room with PURPLE HAZE each month!
