The National Organization for Women, Inc. is committed to taking action to bring women into full equality in the mainstream of American society NOW. Central Texas NOW is looking for activists to fight for reproductive and abortion rights, pay equity, legal and social equality for women, ending domestic violence and sexual assault, and ending racism and homophobia. NOW means ACTION so if you agree with our mission and want make change, join this group. The Texas State Chapter of NOW (Texas NOW) is the umbrella organization for NOW task forces and chapters in Texas. We have a very active Austin NOW group and are organizing in the outlying area between Austin and San Antonio. You can see our upcoming meetings on our meetup page! You can also find out more about NOW and our issues at www.now.org (http://www.now.org/) and http://www.NOWTexas.com and on facebook pages at http://www.facebook.com/TexasStateNOW;http://www.facebook.com/BlackFridayProtest, and http://www.facebook.com/StopFakeClinics .
To join the Texas State Chapter of NOW or make a donation, go to www.NOWTexas.com (http://www.NOWTexas.com). You may also e-mail us at TexasStateNOW@gmail.com for a membership application. Annual dues are $40 with option of reduced rates on a sliding scale. Please join NOW thru Texas State NOW rather than on the now.org website. Regardless of whether you join thru the national or the state organization, you will be joining the national, state and local NOW organizations. The difference is that if you join thru Texas State NOW about 1/3 rd of the money goes to the national organization and the remainder stays here in Texas to help build your local and state organizations. When you join NOW on the national website or make a donation there, not one penny comes back to Texas. Later on when you renew your dues, national keeps about 2/3 rds of the renewal dues and rebates about 1/3 rd of renewal dues to the local or state organization.
