The West Volusia Florida Chapter of NOW is a small and growing, active group of women and men.
We have been in this area and actively speaking out since 1979. We support the equal rights of women in all areas.
NOW is the largest grass roots activist organization in the US. At the local level we work on issues that are relevant
to our own community.
How YOU can help. Florida is one of the three states that can finally get the ERA passed.
We still do not have the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution. Call your State Legislators. Get it passed.
Join us for local events and issues!
