Join Our State Conference – Saturday, November 19th
Join NOW New York as we reflect and set a new feminist agenda for women’s rights. More than ever before, we must act to hold the line and protect our hard-fought gains. Learn how you can take action to advance women and girls, build a pipeline of strong feminist candidates, and expand your activist and feminist toolkits. We’ll be hosting discussions on ending child marriage in our state, holding our institutions accountable for taking rape seriously, and responding to the outcome of the presidential election. Join us for a day of discussion, networking, learning, and vital discussion.
