Lift Your Voices!

Dear NOW members,

      While the new year has just begun, we are still struggling with
women's rights--many of which are in danger of being lost, particularly
those around control of our own bodies. The United States continues
to be a country where too many people are marginalized, who do not
have equality in pay, benefits, or opportunities. Millions of our citizens
have had their voting rights taken away. Will 2022 be the year we
finally pass the Equal Rights Amendment? We can pressure Congress
by holding rallies across the nation and that is exactly what the ERA
Coalition has planned for Thursday, January 27th.

     While the new year has just begun, we are still struggling with

Coalition has planned for Thursday, January 27th.

     On another topic of prime importance at this time is that the rights
we do have were won at high cost by the civil rights movements over
55 years ago. Yet, we have women in Congress badgering and
denigrating other women in Congress because of the color of their
skin, where they were born, what they wear, and their religious beliefs.
Worse, we as a country have not called out these bullies nor have they
lost their positions in our government. Their behavior is
unconscionable! Lift your voices and demand of your Senators and
Representatives to oust these persecutors and all those who mock our
country's ideals. Stand shoulder-to-shoulder with your sisters, support
them, do not denigrate them!

     With all of this, Sonoma County NOW will do its part--we are organizing our own event to gather together in support of the passage of ERA for January 27th and need your help! Bring your ideas to our meeting on January 20th ( Click here for Zoom details). And join in the fight for Equal Rights for All--the time is NOW!
