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.

WHAT’S NEW?

VOTES! RIGHTS! EQUALITY! NOTHING LESS

In 2020, New Jersey NOW celebrates 45 years of grassroots activism in the state. The 2020 New Jersey NOW Virtual State Confernece will be held on October 3, 2020 with webinars leading up to the conference that will start on September 15, 2020. Stay tuned for more info.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Join us in demanding Free Menstrual Products in New Jersey Schools! #FreeThePeriod.

NJ bills S692/A3388 will ensure that free, menstrual products are available for student’s who need them and learning will not be hampered by a lack of access to the products that their biology demands.

Sign the petition here.

It's time to walk the walk - New Jersey. Talking about #BlackLivesMatter and then failing to bring to a vote bill that will save Black Lives will not cut it anymore.

We can no longer ignore calls for policies that affirm that abortion care is healthcare, and healthcare is a fundamental human right which must be guaranteed to all.
#rights + #access = #equity
