July 24-25, July 31-August 1, August 7-8 


Washington, D.C. – The National Organization for Women (NOW) is proud to announce its 2021 Annual Conference, “Springing Hope into Action: Amplifying NOW’s Intersectional Feminist Agenda,” held virtually over the course of three weekends this summer. This year’s conference will be full of action and bring together a diverse group of feminist activists from all walks of life. Our remarkable speakers will offer insights into how we can strengthen democracy and build a feminist future. 

The event will include officer elections, review by-law changes, and introduce resolutions. NOW members can also participate in educational workshops, inspiring plenary sessions, and network in district caucuses. As we celebrate fifty-five years of feminist disruption, electing leaders, and making change, this gathering of intersectional feminists will reinvigorate our grassroots movement that has accomplished so much.
