This month, the Supreme Court struck down a law that treated unwed mothers and fathers differently when granting citizenship to their children born outside the United States — the requirements for fathers were stiffer. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, authoring a majority opinion joined by five other justices, wrote that the law was based on gender stereotypes that violated the notion of equal protection.

This is what we tell volunteers when they are working on the Blue Ridge Parkway:
Don’t let a lack of time or space get in the way of gardening your way to a healthy lifestyle. Plant a container of nutritious vegetables and herbs. Include a few planters on the front porch, back patio or right outside the kitchen door.
There are hundreds upon hundreds of individual hiking trails in Western North Carolina, but how do you piece them together into an outing with a great destination? We’ve done that work for you!
Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective Inc. is a 501(c) 3 certified non-profit organization which purposes to increase and sustain opportunities for more diversity within the Western North Carolina performing arts community, by producing, and working with other performance artists or groups to present works which confront issues of social diversity in a provocative way; and by providing opportunities for audiences to explore visions of our diverse world.
I find joy in creating. When my work is focused on social and environmental issues I find a particularly deep satisfaction.
The mission of the WWBC is to provide capital, high quality technical assistance, and programs that reduce barriers and serve as a catalyst to the success of women entrepreneurs in Western North Carolina.
Because we believe that viable non-profit programs are essential to a healthy community, SheVille.org has in-kind media sponsorship packages available.

REMINDER: The EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT for Women has STILL NOT PASSED! Forward this link to everyone ASAP
There is nothing in the Constitution of the United States that protects U.S. women from discrimination. Ironically, we have insisted that other countries, such as Afghanistan, include such a provision! Equal Means Equal
The Equal Rights Amendment will guarantee equal status under the law and provide bedrock legal protection when women or men face sex discrimination. Protection would cover:
- Lack of equal pay for equal work
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Violence against women
- Other forms of sex discrimination
The Asheville Initiative for Mathematics is a public outreach project run by the Math department. Our mission is to promote excellence in math education and universal math literacy. One step in that direction is to help people remember how much fun math can be – and how creative – and how beautiful. This is the motivation behind Project Snowflake. We hope you enjoy making paper snowflakes! And it’s even more fun with friends and family! Look for these snowflakes in the windows at local businesses, pictures of them on Facebook, and share pictures of your own! #avlsnowflake.
