We enthusiastically invite you to register for the FL NOW Annual State Conference, September 30-October 2. We will be at The Florida Hotel which many of you know. It is lovely. Here’s What We Have So Far

  • Friday, Sept 30: Candidate Reception starting at 5:00pm.
  • Saturday, Oct 1: Plenary and Workshops.
  • Sunday, October 2: Bylaw Change Review and Approval and Resolution Review and Approval.
  • At the end of the FL NOW meeting, we will convene a quick PAC meeting update.
  • Vendor tables all day Saturday.
  • Dance party Saturday after dinner with a cash bar. Let’s Boogie.

Our keynote speakers and workshops will be announced as we confirm calendars.

The theme Florida Feminism Now is about building on our strengths, promoting feminism as a positive force for women and the actions we can and will take.

It is good to physically meet after over 2 years of separation; a delicious opportunity to educate and plan for action, but also to see old friends and make new ones.

The room rate is low at $119 as long as the blocked rooms last. Reserve your room ASAP below.

  • The registration fee for the Conference, including lunch and the Candidate Reception, is $125.
  • But, if you pay online, please add $5.00 for electronic payment fees. And, if you want salmon for lunch, please add $5.00. The link to register is at flnow.org.

This conference is so important because it is right before mid-terms. By the conference, I hope every chapter has done a lot of endorsements of people, especially women that support our issues.

I hope all of you will consider a donation to the Conference to offset costs.

This is a very hard time for all of us with the disastrous decisions that the Supreme Court made, particularly Overturning Roe v Wade. The solidarity we get at the Conference will be uplifting because we never give up, we never go silent, and we always have hope for the future. This fight will be a long one that we’ll fight until abortion is legal again.

We are looking forward to seeing and/or meeting you in-person on Sept 30th!
