Join Chicago NOW as we honor local sheroes! Each year CNOW recognizes two women making a positive impact on the lives of women and girls in the city. Thanks to all who submitted nominations. This year we salute Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle and Teatro Luna, Chicago’s first and only pan-Latina theatre company. We hope you can be with us to celebrate the important work each honoree is engaged in!

Refreshments included. Don’t forget our silent auction!

Your continued support for our organization and the women of Chicago is greatly appreciated. We cannot do this work without all of you! Please contact us at with any questions.

Join Illinois NOW and several other organizations on October 22, 2013, the scheduled first day of the fall veto session of the Illinois state legislature. The “March on Springfield” is part of a broad grassroots strategy to secure final passage of Senate Bill 10, the “Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act,” already approved by the Illinois Senate. Once adopted, Illinois will become the 14th state plus the District of Columbia, to treat all of its citizens equally under state marriage laws.
