National Organization for Women
Dear ,

Tell Us What You Think
Thank you for joining with the National Organization for Women to urge Congress to fully fund the Violence Against Women Act! As president of NOW, I want to be the first to welcome you to our online community.

By signing the petition on Care2, you showed your commitment to defending and advancing women's rights. We still have a long way to go, and we could use your help.

Ending violence against women is just one part of what we need to do to achieve equal rights. We know that in order to end sexism we must also end racism and homophobia, ensure women's access to the full range of reproductive health services including abortion and birth control, and work to reduce the income and wealth inequality that disproportionately affects women in communities of color.

That's why NOW is also working to demand changes at Wal-Mart, whose friendly image is contradicted by a dismal track record of sex discrimination in pay and promotion; to win recognition of same-sex couples' right to marry; and to prevent cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the social programs that disproportionately serve women — and disproportionately employ women as well. And we are determined to reverse the recent spate of state legislative assaults on women's access to abortion care and birth control.

Adding your voice to our petition was the first step, but there are a few more things you can do with NOW, like:
In the months ahead, we will be in touch with you, and I hope you will continue to do your part and spread the word about NOW's important work.

For women's lives,

Terry O'Neill, President
National Organization for Women
