A few words about us
AZNOW uses a variety of strategies in advancing women's rights and addressing NOW's core issues. Through our legislative, educational, and political work, we strive to effect change on different levels and in diverse ways. Our state coordinators/board members focus on specific issues while our general members are welcome to contribute in any way they would like (learn more about membership here).
AZNOW is the umbrella chapter for the local NOW chapters in Arizona, however, each chapter functions as its own entity.
We welcome you to visit any of our local chapters, located in Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff, or inquire about how to start one near you!
