Dear Florida NOW members and friends,
The 2018 Florida NOW conference is just days away. If you haven’t registered but intend to, there is no time like the present. You can also register at the conference prior to the day’s events. Registration begins at 3:00 PM on June 1 at the Tampa Westshore Marriott.
You might want to make an extra effort to attend our opening cocktail reception with three Gubernatorial Candidates attending. Gwen Graham, Chris King and Philip Levine have all agreed to stop by. The event starts at 5:30 PM.
We are so pleased to be sponsoring EIGHT Young Feminists from FSU, UM and Stetson. They are all active in their NOW campus affiliates. This will be the first NOW conference for many of them.
But this also adds to the overall cost of the conference. The students will be able to enjoy all aspects of the conference and are paying for their own accommodations. Florida NOW is responsible for their lunches and attendance at other conference meetings and it does add up.
These students are so excited to attend! They have all been leaders in their campus affiliates and have a genuine passion for our issues. So many of us have said we need to get more younger people involved in NOW and here is our chance.
Any amount would be a help. If you can afford it, you can select ‘Sponsor a Feminist Sister’ on the Registration page to donate $100. If you want to donate less, please go to the DONATE link at the top of any page and indicate in the notation that it is to help sponsor a student. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your generosity and I hope to see many of you at the conference.
President, Florida NOW
