It’s NOW’s 55th Anniversary! We are excited to celebrate our history of disruption, our sisterhood, and making change for the future. Join us for our special virtual event honoring 55 years of feminist activism.

Where: Zoom

When: June 30, 2021 at 4 PM PT (7 PM ET).

Since NOW was established, we have been at the forefront of the feminist movement. We championed and stewarded landmark legislation like Title IX, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the Violence Against Women Act; organized millions of women for the March for Women’s Lives on the National Mall; and have kept the pressure on elected officials to recognize women as equal citizens.

Our organization, which started on a napkin, is now the largest grassroots network of feminist activists. On June 30, we invite you to join us virtually for a special anniversary celebration to honor our legacy of leading the feminist movement, and how we will continue the fight for the next 55 years.

The NOW 55th Anniversary Celebration will pay tribute to our legacy of leading change, and how we will continue the fight through intersectional feminism. With a program featuring a diverse roster of thought-leaders and changemakers, the event will tackle critical women’s rights issues through dynamic conversations and unique insights. This special milestone celebration is open to members, prospective members, and anyone interested learning more about the feminist agenda.

The interactive program will include a fireside chat with our National President, Christian F. Nunes, and an engaging Q&A session.

This event roster of speakers includes:

Heather Booth – Civil Rights Activist and lifetime NOW member
Dr. Sonora Jha – Author of How to Raise a Feminist Son
Dr. Gary Ford, Jr. – Author of Constance Baker Motley: One Woman’s Fight for Civil Rights and Equal Justice Under Law
