Women are still not guaranteed equal rights under the U.S. Constitution. NOW has made ratifying the ERA a top priority because equality in pay, job opportunities, political structure, education, health care, including reproductive health care, and education–in particular for women of color, women with disabilities and the LGBTQIA community–will remain an elusive dream without a guarantee in the U.S. Constitution. An ERA would also make it significantly more difficult to roll back progress on women’s equality: an acute concern under the current administration.

NOW’s Action Agenda:

Spokane Area NOW is a 501(c)4 organization, meaning that any donations are not tax deductible. But it also means that we can be political: endorse candidates, canvass, phone bank and work with other local, state and national organizations to ensure we have the right representation for our community.
