National NOW Conference comes to Tampa this weekend
The National Organization of Women starts its yearly national conference in Tampa tomorrow morning. In a series of panels and speeches, the event will focus on a range of issues impacting women, including abortion and workersâ rights. Ahead of the conference we caught up with Eleanor Cecil, a board member for NOWâs Tampa chapter, for a preview of the weekendâs events.
Cecil said the list of keynote speakers includes Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor. Some NOW members plan on demonstrating outside US Senator Marco Rubioâs Tampa office tomorrow morning at ten. Theyâre rallying against proposed cuts in the federal budget that would affect service many women receive. Rubio has been a strong supporter of such cuts.comments powered by Disqus
