Don't Gamble with Women's Rights ...
Come to Las Vegas for the National NOW Conference!
I'm writing to tell you about an important event this summer: the 2004 National NOW Conference! This year's conference in Las Vegas, the weekend of July 16-18, will be our most important ever as we strategize, discuss, and organize for the 2004 elections and the years ahead.
Join NOW members across the country for three days of fun and friends, fast-paced workshops, great speakers and entertainers, skill-building sessions, special interest caucuses, and, of course, sharing stories about this spring’s March for Women's Lives.
Perhaps you're coming to meet the fearless former Democratic presidential candidate Carol Moseley Braun, groundbreaking scientist and diversity expert Dr. Donna J. Nelson, feisty author and radio host Laura Flanders (her new book, The “W” Factor, is just out), or writer/comedian Wendy Shanker, whose new book is The Fat Girls Guide to Life. Or you've heard that women's music icon Cris Williamson will be performing in concert with SONiA (of disappear fear) just for us! Maybe you're just looking for the next road trip and zap-action with the friends who marched with you in D.C.
Maybe you've been waiting for the Young Feminist Caucus being planned by NOW's new Young Feminist Task Force, or with the upcoming elections you're planning to participate in voter outreach trainings or the NOW Political Institute. Possibly you're ready to translate feminist issues into action by participating in workshops dealing with war and women, marriage equality, emergency contraception, affordable housing, the global economy, AIDS, drugs, poverty, workers, reproductive health, a new Violence Against Women Act and more...
Whatever your reasons, make plans now to spend July 16-18 with your NOW sisters in the glittery city. Southwest Airlines flies to Vegas, as does JetBlue, and inexpensive seats on other airlines are frequently available online at Orbitz.com, Cheaptickets.com, and many others. Register online today for the conference or call 202-628-8669, ext. 117. Then book a flight and call the legendary Riviera Hotel and Casino at 1-800-634-6753 to reserve a room at a fantastic conference rate of $79. (Note: We are already sold out in the hotel for Sunday nightapparently a lot of activists decided to stay over and play!) Remember to make your hotel reservation no later than June 25 so you'll get the conference rate, and so NOW will get credit for your room toward the cost of our meeting space. And check www.now.org/conference regularly to see the new speakers we're adding and the great array of workshops that are still in formation. See you in Las Vegas!
President, National Organization for Women (NOW)
P.S. Remember, please act soon: Hotel rooms are going fast (again, Sunday night is already sold out) and June 25 is the deadline for online registration!
