Support NOW on Giving Tuesday!

Today is Giving Tuesday and it's all about celebrating nonprofits and the things we do together to change the world.

The NC National Organization wants to continue and expand our coverage of bills
and good and bad changes for women and families in North Carolina, and what you can do to impact the current regressive policies. Our weekly legislative
updates may have amazed and frightened you during the legislative session - the
timely updates were covering some shocking behavior with the lawmakers and our governor. We were a consistent presence at the Moral Mondays in Raleigh, with female and male members from around the state (and that big magenta uterus which came on an NC NOW bus from Charlotte). NC NOW was involved in the planning of a few of the Moral Mondays, after recognizing early that public outcry was needed. We continue to keep you updates via emails, newsletters and facebook updates (find us at NC-NOW-National-Organization-for-Women).

But we need your help. Our work is supported by people like you - as members or
supporters. Help us continue to keep you up on what is happening in North Carolina, and what you can do about it.
