We are offering you the chance to register for the Conference for a super-low rate of $19.66 (the year NOW was founded). That's a triple-digit savings (regular registration for members is $125)!
Please Join Us at the NOW Conference!
This is an opportunity for us to gather and tackle the critical issues on NOW's agenda and shape the future of women's rights.
Women's rights are under attack in state after state and it is more important than ever that we focus on building a women's movement from the strength of diversity and inclusion.
At the conference you'll learn about NOW's priority issues as well as build the skills necessary to change the world and fight for women's equality.
See you in Albuquerque!

The Santa Fe NOW / Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice fundraiser for the Pro-Choice Safety Network Fund featuring feminist author Jessica Valenti was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who volunteered, donated, and attended our events. The afternoon Meet the Author buffet at Jambo Café was completely sold out and the evening event, “A Conversation with Jessica Valenti” at The Santa Fe Woman’s Club was standing room
only! The Silent Auction was a tremendous success. We raised a lot of money for the Pro-Choice Safety Network Fund, raised awareness for Santa Fe NOW and created a forum for future actions against the War on Women in New Mexico. Here are some pictures from the afternoon and evening events.
Author, feminist, and activist, Jessica Valenti's only New Mexico appearance to benefit The Pro-Choice Safety Network Fund
New Mexico has only three abortion providers, all located in Albuquerque; the Pro-Choice Safety Network Fund helps defray the extra and often hidden costs for women traveling to Albuquerque. The fund covers costs such as bus tickets, meals, overnight stays and other non-medical needs such as childcare.
Saturday, September 22, 2012 from 3-5 pm and 7-9 pm
