NOW is a multi-issue political organization. NOW's self-defined role has been to initiate change for the benefit of the greatest number of people, to affect the legal and institutional structures of the society in a way that systematically expands the choices and possibilities available to all women. In this way, NOW takes action to bring women, as a class, into the mainstream of society, rather than offering aid to individual women in achieving personal solutions or temporary relief from oppression.

Florida NOW is proud to announce that we have a new Archivist. For
several years, FLNOW has been donating its old files to UF Libraries.
This year, a Masters student in Women Studies, Tim D'Annecy
took those files and digitized them and created a wiki, where they are
indexed and searchable. More importantly, they are safe for herstory.
Please see the wiki at flnowarchive.org
If you have files to add to the archive, or just to tell Tim how amazing it is, you can contact him here.

- Florida must take our health care challenges on the FRONT END by finding a way to return Florida's $51 billion in federal funds to Florida to extend healthcare coverage to 800,000 low-income working Floridians
- Doing so will support a healthy workforce with PREVENTIVE health insurance, thus helping people get healthy, and stay healthy...A hand up, not a handout, as our Senators have said.
- Governor Scott has diverted attention to Low Income Pool (LIP), which is merely a band-aid. It is healthcare for catastrophic needs delivered in the emergency room. The Senate Plan tries to be proactive and help our 800,000 uncovered low wage earners get healthy AND get protected at the front end. This is less expensive, and much better for Florida families while fostering a competitive and profitable work environment.
- LIP is NOT health care coverage
