NOW of GMC is an intersectional, multi-strategy organization that takes a holistic approach to women’s rights. We champion racial justice, LGBTQ+ rights, economic justice, reproductive rights, constitutional equality, the end of violence against women, and climate justice. Through educating, mobilizing, and convening a network of grassroots members, we advocate for policies that promote an anti-racist and intersectional feminist agenda.
*Feminist— advocating equality for women.*
The National Organization for Women is the largest organization of feminist grassroots activists in the United States. NOW has hundreds of chapters and hundreds of thousands of members and activists in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. NOW activists do extensive electoral and lobbying work and bring lawsuits to bring about systemic change. We also organize mass marches, rallies, pickets, non-violent civil disobedience, and immediate, responsive actions. NOW’s actions have established the organization as a major force in the sweeping changes that put more women in political posts; increased educational, employment and business opportunities for women; and enacted tougher laws against violence, harassment, and discrimination.
NOW of Greater Marion County is a group dedicated to standing in solidarity, through community engagement, with those in the struggle for equality and equity. This mission attracts women and men of diverse backgrounds and asks us to look at the systemic oppression in our lives and determine actions that will bring about change for us all.
Please, reach out, we want to build strong alliances and stronger communities.
