NOW Hear This: September 22, 2023 Newsletter

Message from National NOW President Christian F. Nunes


Greetings Feminists,

Advocating for our different communities is a necessary part of allyship. As we enter the last week of September, we will celebrate Ally Week loudly and proudly. Ally Week began in 2005 and is a nationwide youth-led campaign to rally students and staff to be effective allies for LGBTQIA+ youth. 

Ally Week focuses on fighting against school-based victimization and highlights the need to implement supportive policies and practices for LGBTQIA+ youth. Our children deserve free and happy lives regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.   

This is the time to take a stand against harmful bullying and harassment, strengthen bonds, and recommit to allyship and solidarity, not just for LGBTQIA+ youth but for the entirety of the LGBTQIA+ community. LGBTQIA+ rights have long been one of NOW’s six core issues, and we remain committed to fighting injustices and discrimination against this important community, now and in the future. 


In solidarity,
