I will be cross-posting events and information from an Triangle MomsRising…this is their blog.

Yesterday I created a banner for the site!!

When I get back from my trip I will post my thoughts about this event!

Sunday, March 30, 4-6 Representative Melanie Wade Goodwin, a state legislator representing Richmond and Montgomery counties, will be joining us to talk about the NC General Assembly, how we can be effective advocates for children, and what its like to be the mother of small children and a state legislator. With the birth of her second child at the end of April, she will make history as the first legislator in NC history to give birth while in office. She is traveling over an hour at 8 months pregnant to speak to us because she’s excited about what we’re trying to do. We really want to have a good turnout, so please try to join us and invite your friends!
