    From former State House  Rep. Victoria Steele on FB:

    “We had our first meeting to reactivate the N.O.W. chapter in Tucson and Southern Arizona. We first planned to have a small gathering in my living room but had to move when we quickly had more than 100 people RSVP! Tremendous energy in the room and lots of ideas. We heard from the wonderful Claudia Elquist – a former N.O.W. leader who literally fought on the front lines for the Equal Rights Amendment. She told us of the history and founding principles of N.O.W. to help guide us. Jenny McCullough Cosgrove and I are helping to get it up and started.  Contact us at TucsonAZNOW@gmail.com, or find us on Facebook, Twitter and at Now.org.”
