June 18 Meeting

The membership of the Raleigh-Wake AAUW branch will hold its final meeting of the year at 5:15 PM on June 18. We traditionally take July and August off for evaluation of the previous year and planning of next year’s programs.

AAUW’s Raleigh-Wake Branch

is proud to present the speaker for our

June 18th Meeting

Rebecca Cerese

Health Engagement Coordinator for the NC Justice Center

Our June program featured Rebecca Cerese who is the Health Engagement Coordinator for the NC Justice Center. Rebecca lead the six individuals in attendance through a very informative power point presentation sharing the basic premise of the Medicaid Expansion Option, the pros and cons to adopting it for North Carolina, and fielded questions from the group. On June 5th , there was a state-wide Vigil to highlight the importance of expanding Medicaid before our General Assembly retires its session. She stressed five important actions all of us can take: tell your story because every story matters; meet with your local representatives and check vote411.org if you do not know who they are; write a letter to the editor expressing your concerns; sign-up for action alerts from the NC Justice Center; and sign a petition at https://tinyurl.com/yxkcsyzq.
