BLUE RIBBON LOBBY DAY

BlueRibbonLobbyDay2012On Apr 9th Local Lodge 2210 attended the first annual Blue Ribbon Day at the Texas
Capitol.   Eight women from our local came together with 600 other women from all
over the state of Texas.  The Blue Ribbon Day celebrated women of Texas and there
issue which are:
Women’s health care
Fight for Medicaid expansion
Public education vs. vouchers
Support of fair pay for women  proposed by Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of
2009
We went to our State Senators and Representatives to discuss these issues.  We
hope to make next year bigger and have more women from our local lodge attend.
