WASHINGTON–Leaders of the National Organization for Women (NOW) will be putting final plans together for its grassroots NOW4HILLARY campaign at its strategy summit in New Orleans, LA, June 18-21, 2015. The president of NOW, Terry O’Neill released the following statement:
NOW’s activists will change our lives for the next 16 months, organizing on the ground and online, to make Hillary Clinton the first feminist woman elected to the White House — and to elect more women’s rights supporters to the House and Senate who will work with her as president. This is an opportunity of historic proportions. NOW4Hillary will impact not only this election, but also the future of the women’s movement.
Activists in NOW’s hundreds of chapters across the country will use and enhance their skills in grassroots mobilization, fundraising, public speaking, social media organizing and outreach, and so much more. With Hillary Clinton as president, more feminists in Congress, and hundreds of thousands of new, skilled and experienced activists, we’ll see another burst of progress in improving the lives of women, our families and our communities.
NOW’s Strategy Summit is also the culmination of a three-year modernization project undertaken to streamline NOW and enhance the organization’s grassroots strength and effectiveness. Details of NOW4HILLARY will officially be announced at a plenary session at the Strategy Summit on Saturday, June 20 at 12:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans (601 Loyola Ave.).
