The National Organization for Women is a multi-issue, multi-strategy organization that takes a holistic approach to women’s rights. Our priorities are winning economic equality and securing it with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that will guarantee equal rights for women; championing abortion rights, reproductive freedom and other women’s health issues; opposing racism; fighting bigotry against the LGBTQIA community; and ending violence against women.

Another suggestion is to sign up with the UUJF - Unitarian Universalist Justice Florida. Unitarian Universalists have a long tradition of working for social justice. UU Justice has similar values to our organization. They have created a marvelous alert system. If you sign up, you'll only get alerts for you to write your particular state representative or in some cases a committee chair or the committee members. Many times the bill shows up on a committee's agenda just a few days before the committee meeting so UU Justice's timely alerts are hard for us to duplicate. We encourage everyone to sign up for their alerts.
The Jacksonville NOW chapter is intensely involved with local and state issues. Each year during the 60-day state legislative session, we follow the bills that affect our priorities. For more information check out
