THE MOST MEANINGFUL CHANGE STARTS AT HOME.

Sussex County NOW’s purpose is to organize and take action with the aim of bringing women into full and equal participation in our county, state, and country.

 

SUPPORT YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL FEMINISTS.

Every little bit helps, and with every little bit we are working to make our community a more equitable place.

 

NOW is a multi-issue, multi-strategy organization taking a holistic approach to women’s rights. Our priorities are winning economic equality and securing it with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that will guarantee equal rights for women; championing abortion rights, reproductive freedom and other women’s health issues; opposing racism; fighting bigotry against the LGBTQ+ community; and ending violence against women.

REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS & JUSTICE

NOW fully supports access to safe and legal abortion, to effective birth control and emergency contraception, to reproductive health services and education for all women.

ECONOMIC JUSTICE

NOW advocates for wide range of economic justice issues affecting women including a living wage, job discrimination, pay equity, social security and pension reform & more.

ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

NOW is unique in its comprehensive approach to the issue of violence against women, emphasizing that there are many interrelated aspects to the issue.

RACIAL JUSTICE

A leader in civil rights since 1966, NOW continues to fight for equal opportunities for women of color in all areas including employment, education & health care.

LGBTQ+ RIGHTS

NOW is committed to fighting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in all areas, including employment, housing, health services, and child custody.

CONSTITUTIONAL EQUALITY

Equality in pay, job opportunities, political structure, social security and education will remain elusive without a guarantee of equality in the U.S. Constitution.
