March is International Women’s History month and while Nero’s consort Poppaea may not exactly be the type of woman organizers had in mind, this is the time of year when the awesome movie Quo Vadis sometimes comes on television and it’s the best of the Easter movies and one of the best movies ever actually. But what can you do besides watch television?
Ocean State Action has two events coming up.
Wednesday — ‘Drinking Liberally’ at the Wild Colonial Tavern at 250 South Water Street.
Please join us in raising our glasses in honor of leading ladies from around Rhode Island. Special guest speakers will include Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts, State Representative Grace Diaz, Women’s Fund of RI Executive Director Dr. Marcia Coné and RI NOW President Carolyn Mark. We hope you can join us on Wednesday, March 28, at Wild Colonial, from 7pm to 9pm.
Thursday — ‘Lobby for Women’s Health Day’ in the State House rotunda.
Join activists from all across Rhode Island to lobby in support of women’s healthcare. Let’s show legislators that Rhode Islanders support women. Arrive at the Rhode Island State House on Smith Street and check in at our table at 3pm. We will provide you with talking points, a brief training and accompany you to find your legislators. Thursday, March 29, 3pm to 5pm.
