NOW works to eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system, and all other sectors of society; secure abortion, birth control and reproductive justice for all women; end all forms of violence against women; eradicate racism, sexism and homophobia; and promote equality and justice in our society.
How we accomplish that is up to us. As a grassroots organization, we are driven by our membership. Because of recent activity in the Texas Legislature, for example, our main focuses right now are reproductive rights and voter registration. We regularly hold voter registration events to get our members certified as Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrars; we go to the Capitol to attend hearings on legislation we are passionate about; and we have begun an enormous initiative with the long-term goal of protesting every single Crisis Pregnancy Center in the greater Travis-Williamson County area.
These days, more than ever, it is SO important to do more than just sit around and complain about the state of things–our organization is all about getting to work NOW! Whatever you’re passionate about, we hope you will join us in our fight for gender justice & equality in central Texas.
