The Women’s Agenda Assembly (WAA) is an organized meeting of women around the state of North Carolina that takes place in multiple counties every other year (typically in the last quarter of the year, before the long legislative session begins).
The WAA was established in 1988 by North Carolina Women United, a non-partisan group responsible for facilitating the coordination of Women’s Agenda Assemblies, Women’s Advocacy and Legislative Report Cards.
The purpose of the WAA is to provide an opportunity for women to express their views, prioritize issues that impact women and families and to ensure the voice of women is heard through advocacy in the General Assembly.
Why You Should Attend
The Women’s Agenda Assembly is one way Your voice can be heard in Raleigh.
During the Assembly, you will have an opportunity to hear from local experts regarding the current status of women, girls and families in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region and you will have the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience of the issues. Round table discussion will take place, following which Agenda participants will prioritize the issues.
A report outlining and prioritizing the issues will be compiled and used to advocate with the General Assembly – the North Carolina Senate and House. Regular follow up (report cards) are then done to measure the success of the Women’s Agenda Assembly. In addition, the report will also be used in to measure change in legislative policies affecting women in our community.
