NOW is the largest, most comprehensive feminist advocacy group in the
United States with hundreds of thousands of contributing members and hundreds
of state and local chapters across all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Our mission is to bring women into full participation in society – sharing
equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities with men, while living free
from discrimination. DC NOW works to
eliminate all forms of discrimination against women and girls - with a focus on
the District of Columbia. DC NOW endorses feminist-allies on the DC
Council and has helped pass the Access to Contraceptives Amendment Act and
Protecting Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. We advocate for sexual assault
prevention in the Metro Police Department and work with feminist partners such
as Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) to move our agenda forward. Join this dynamic organization today!
