Iowa NOW is the umbrella under which local Iowa chapters of the National Organization for Women operate and is an activist rather than a direct services organization. We seek to effect change through lobbying, advocacy, education and protest. The best way you can help Iowa NOW is to advocate for issues that forward NOW's six priority action items. These priority items are reproductive rights, ending sex discrimination/constitutional equality, promoting diversity and ending racism, economic justice, stopping violence against women, and LGBTQ rights. This advocacy can be done in a variety of ways, including attending protests/rallies, contacting your representatives on pending legislation, and educating others on NOW's mission.
