Here are Photos from the Clothesline Project
May 16, 2019 – ERA-NC Alliance members set up a clothesline at the NC General Assembly to show off all the municipalities, counties and organization resolutions – as well as hundreds of petition signatures – in favor of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. Several of the bill co-sponsors dropped by, and we chatted with many state employees about the fact that women are not formally protected under the US Constitution. So many people believe the amendment was ratified in the ’70’s! Sadly, several members of the NCGA leadership passed us by with a dismissive ‘you don’t need it’ comment, and refused to stop and talk with us. We need to get their attention and hold real conversations about why women in North Carolina and across the country should be in the constitution! Click here to see the photos

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
