Brevard NOW

Marriage Equality has come to Florida. On January 6, 2015, Florida became the thirty-sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage in all 67 counties.       

Several Brevard County organizations have been working steadfastly for years to bring about this legislation and they're in the mood to celebrate!

In observance of the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade,  the Brevard Chapter of The National Organization for Women (NOW) presents Roe at Risk: Fighting for Reproductive Justice.     

The event takes place Tuesday, January 13, 5:30 p.m. at Blue Cellar on New Haven Avenue in downtown Melbourne. The presentation will take place during Brevard NOW's monthly meeting. 

Special guest speaker is Joyce Hamilton Henry Ph.D; Director of Mid Florida Region, ACLU Florida.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In recognition of this important topic,  The Brevard Chapter of The National Organization for Women and Zonta Club of Melbourne present "Human Trafficking - Modern Day Slavery."

The event takes place on Tuesday, October 14, 5:30 p.m. at the Blue Cellar, 924 E. New Haven Ave., Melbourne.  Speakers will address local efforts to combat human trafficking and legislation to help victims and prosecute traffickers.

You can help "take back the night, shatter the silence and stop the violence."
