TOWN HALL

Rep. Darren Soto and our Shero  Rep.Lois Frankel at Orlando Women's Town Hall, joined by our NOW members on June 8.


  

The NOW Conference in Tampa was great!! 

We had a 2 person play on Granny D (in her 90's), who walked 3200 miles across America for Campaign Finance Reform.  We plan to bring this performance to Orlando in October.  Tickets will be $5.   What an amazing story.
 
         We made a commitment to have Florida be the Final State to pass the ERA.  The Equal Rights Amendment states in section 1 "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex." 

   Our Senator Bill Nelson presented a copy of the Congressional Record announcing the replacement of a Florida Confederate Officer in the Capitol's Statutory Hall by a statue of Mary McCleod Bethune.  The presentation was made to Ersula Knox-Odom, the Florida actress who reenacts the life of Ms. Bethune, whose parents were freed slaves.  As a free Black woman, Dr. Bethune founded Florida's Bethune-Cookman University so African-Americans could receive a first class education.  Ms. Odom was extraordinary in her portrayal.  We will try to book her for an event as well.

We have a plan to fight their deceptive interference with women's right to abortion.  Watch this site for our next meeting.

In Tampa on July 1, we protested one of these FAKE Clinics.

They get money from states for doing nothing on the pretext of being pregnancy Clinics.

It will be on  June 21  , 2018 at the Denny’s at 440 S. SEMORAN BLVD.

     Orlando, 6 PM  Just South of Lake Underhill on Semoran.

                Everyone is welcome to attend.

And we will have 3 collectable bumper stickers and buttons

for members who bring a friend. And a prize for the new member or visitor.

If you have something you no longer want, we would love to have it.

If you would bring it, we would sell it at one of our garage sales.

(Our last one was March 9, 10, 11)  We use these for fund raising. 

Then join us for dinner at 6:30 PM.
