Event Description

The Women’s Studies Program at Southern Connecticut State University will hold an Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) Symposium on Sept. 19. Presenters will be: Cathy Murphy, representing Connecticut Rep. Chris Murphy; Attorney Burton Weinstein, who represented the plaintiff in Thurman v. Torrington; State Rep. Gary Holder-Winfield; Attorney Natalie Holder-Winfield, president of Diversity Quest; and Teresa Younger, Permanent Commission on the Status of Women. U.S. Representative Rosa DeLauro will deliver the introduction.
 
The ERA states, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” While many believe that women residing in the United States now have equal rights, millions of women are subjected to domestic violence every year. The ERA is an amendment that speaks to those who have the power and authority to make change where change is desperately needed, while simultaneously protecting women from acts of violence that are routinely ignored and overlooked by officials.
 
The symposium, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the Adanti Student Center Ballroom from 5-7:30 p.m. It is part of the university’s observation of Constitution Day. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A and the opportunity for members of the audience to share their views. For more information, call (203) 392-6133.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
