LD 197 Flash Action at the Rally for Maine Women & Girls (Augusta)

May 10 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

It’s 2017 and Maine women still don’t have equal protection under our state consitution. On May 10 women from across the state will gather in Augusta for Women’s Day at the Statehouse, a full day of networking, lobbying, and rallying support for the issues that are most important to Maine women. Included in the day’s line-up is the Rally for Maine Women and Girls. Suit Up Maine will be there, and we’re planning to conduct a Flash Action during the rally in support of LD 197, Maine’s Equal Right Amendment. WEAR RED AND BRING A SIGN!

Can’t make it to the rally? Join us virtually! Make a sign of support for LD 197, take a picture of it, and email it to the bill’s sponsor, Lois Reckitt, at Lois.Reckitt@legislature.maine.gov, between 11:45 and 12:30.

Sponsored by a powerhouse coalition including Maine Women’s Lobby, Planned Parenthood, the American Association of University Women, Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence, Maine Equal Justice Partners, Maine Family Planning, New Ventures Maine, and joined by resistance groups from all over Maine, Women’s Day runs from 8am to 3pm and is packed with speakers, workshops, rallies, and lobbying. Gather up all the women and girls in your life and join our voices in Augusta!
