Who We Are

ChaptersContra Costa County (CA) NOW was founded in 1971 by four local women, Grace Blood, Susan (Seaborne) Bonner, Sally (Phettaplace) Johnson and Catherine Walters.  Our primary issues include reproductive rights, marriage equality, ending violence against women and promoting equal opportunity for girls and women. We meet 6 to 8 times per year. Some of our meetings are held at the Walnut Creek library on North Broadway.  Usually we have a garden party sometime in May, June, or July and a holiday party in December. We are very proud of our 49-year activist history in our community. Come and join us and be involved!
