LGBTQIA+ History Month 

Dear NOW members,

October is certainly slipping by quickly! It's already the 15th—where did that time go? We held a successful Women's Rally on October 2 with the Sonoma County Democratic Party and several hundred attendees; and our petition with 601 signatures is being sent to the President, the Vice President, our Congressmen (Mike Thompson and Jared Huffman), the Speaker of the House, and the Senate Majority Leader. Thanks to all of you who were able to help and/or who participated. It was exciting and even though we couldn't hold a march, we did encourage lots of cars to honk as they drove by!

This month is LGBTQIA+ History Month (Coming Out Day was October 11th) and we are hosting a special presentation on Friday, October 29th, from 6–8 p.m., by two members of the Lesbian Archives of Sonoma County and one of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Please join us via Zoom! See the Event page for details.

We will also be holding our regular board meeting beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 21 and welcome all members, particularly those of you who want to join the Executive Board or see what it is like. Help us continue the momentum of this chapter!

--Amy Nykamp
