Posting Instructions

1. If you want to share your thoughts on a proposal (remember these are just concepts, the actual language will be developed later), write your reply in the text box bellow the words Leave Reply, and in the box “Enter your comment here…”

2. If you want to respond to a comment that another NOW member has left regarding a proposal, click the small blue link that says “Reply” underneath said comment. It is very important that you click this reply button and not start another comment so that the conversation is easily followed and clear!

3. You MUST put your full name and chapter affiliation before every comment you leave. If a comment does not have a name and chapter affiliation it will not be approved. This is to ensure that only NOW members are commenting.

4. Remember be respectful and friendly! All NOW members want to work to improve the organization and it takes collaboration and patience on our part as a grassroots organization to make sure that all of our members voices are heard – even those with whom we may disagree with.

5. Be creative and don’t be afraid to say what you think! It is vital that you share your opinions — in order to create the best proposals possible we need to know what all of the members think! This site is for YOU to have your voices heard.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    My name is McKenna, and I am one of the interns for Terry’s office this spring. She asked me to post information on what an action is for a chapter. According to NOW’s Chapter Activity Report, an activity can be:

    -Participating in a NOW National Action Campaign
    -Demonstration (rally, protest/picket, speak out, vigil, etc.)
    -Creating/Circulating a Petition
    -Candidate Forum
    -Issue Forum
    -Panel Discussion
    -Film Screening
    -Town Hall / Tele-Town Hall
    -In-District Meeting
    -Lobby Day
    -Blog Post/Carnival
    -Tweet Chat / Twitter Storm
    -Letter to the Editor / Op-Ed
    -Tabling
    -Phone-banking
    -Canvassing
    -Voter Registration
    -Policy Change
    -Other

    This list can be found on our website in the NOW Leaders section, under the “Chapter Management” heading. An extensive list of examples of specific chapter actions is also in the NOW Leaders section on the website, under the “Action” heading. It is listed as “Examples of Chapter Actions.” A few examples from the list include:

    30th anniversary of Roe v. Wade
    • Brooklyn (N.Y.) NOW Jan. 2003
    Wal-Mart Protest
    • Albany (N.Y.) NOW
    Susan B. Anthony Birthday Celebration
    • Houston NOW Feb. 15, 2003
    Women’s Equality Day
    • Santa Barbara (Calif.) NOW Aug. 26, 2002

    Protest State Funding of Crisis Pregnancy Centers
    • Virginia NOW Oct. 6, 2001

    Hopefully these documents will help clear up any remaining questions about what constitutes as a chapter action.
