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 Reproductive Freedom Act (S3030/A4848) is ground-breaking legislation that will protect the right to abortion care for everyone in New Jersey and expand access to critical reproductive health services, especially for historically marginalized communities.
Take Action NOW to help us ensure the RFA is brought before the Senate and Assembly Health Committees as soon as possible. Check out our Calls to Action page for instructions.
Conference Program Book features Candidate bios, Speaker bios, Sponsor ads, Oral History articles and more…
