National Organization for Women of New Jersey

We are a multi-issue, multi-strategy organization that takes a holistic approach to women’s rights. Our activists use both traditional and nontraditional means to push for social change. We engage in electoral and lobbying work. We organize marches, rallies, non-violent civil disobedience and immediate, responsive “zap” actions.

TAKE ACTION TODAY

The Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act (S49/A6260contains a very strong declaration of reproductive rights with no restrictions.  NOW New Jersey believes it will serve New Jerseyans well to have such language codified in state statute, at a point in time when the US Supreme Court appears poised to gut the right at the federal level.  The bill is not law yet. It must pass by majority vote in the Assembly and sSenate and the Governor must sign it. This legislative session will end on Tuesday, January 11 at noon.  

Take Action NOW to help us ensure that this bill passes in both chambers when it brought forward for a vote on Monday. Click here to email your legislators and urge them to VOTE YES on S49/A6260.

“I think most people are under the assumption that you can just walk into an OB-GYN office and get an abortion because abortion is legal. And that’s just simply not the case.” - Anjali Mehrotra, @NOWNewJersey
