Conference Spotlight

Conference Wrap-Up

Thank you to all the interns, volunteers, speakers, activists and members who made the 2013 National NOW Conference a huge success! Check out our photo collection at Flickr for pictures from the first and second days of the conference.

If you attended the conference, we would love to hear from you. Our survey should only take about 5 minutes to complete. We appreciate your participation!

NOW on Zimmerman Verdict

"We cannot allow our country to be a place where an unarmed teenager walking to his own home can be shot with impunity by a self-styled neighborhood watch vigilante. The gun death of a teenager should not require the protests of thousands to get a proper investigation." Read full statement here.

Grassroots Spotlight

NOW activists from all over the country participated in an anti-Walmart rally in Chicago, IL. The event took place during the 2013 National NOW Conference. Pictures are available online and we will be posting video shortly!

Roberta Waddle, president of Fayetteville NOW, was interviewed by the Fay Observer regarding her chapter's involvement with the growing Moral Monday movement. All told, eleven members of Fayetteville NOW attended the July 8 rally.

NOW Charlotte member Meredith Laney, writing about her Moral Monday experience for her blog, urges us to remember that "we're in this together, and we're in this for the long haul."
