Transcript Texas State National Organization for Women NATIONAL NEWSLETTER VOLUME I, Number 1 August, 1975 STATEMENT ABOUT STATE DUES AND STRUCTURE In the summer of 1973» Jackie Frost, Southern Regional Director, asked the Texas delegates to the Southern Regional Conference in Atlanta, Georgia to meet to talk about extablishing a state NOW structure in Texas. Harla Kaplan and Marlene Kilby from Houston, Marge Schuchat, Shirley Goodwin, and Martha Dickey from Dallas, and Dorothy Dubose from Port Worth met together and began to plan how we would start our state organization. Martha Dickey volunteered the Dallas County NOW Chapter to coordinate the first Convention in the fall of 1973. In September a planning committee met in Dallas with the following chapters represented! Port Worth, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, and Arlington. Suzanne deSatrustequi volunteered to chair the By-Laws Committee which met in San Antonio and drafted State By-Laws before the November 1973 State Convention. At the First NOW State Convention in Dallas in the Oak Lawn Methodist Church the By-Laws were adopted and officers were elected. During the first year for a state organization the State Coordinator, Martha Dickey visited existing chapters in Waco, Houston Area, Temple, Port Worth, Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio and convened new chapters in Abilene, North East Texas, Huntsville, San Marcos, El Paso, Killeen, Lubbock, and Bay Area. Since the first year new chapters have been convened in Big Spring, Brazoria Co., Golden Triangle, Houston Inner City, Longview, Northeast Houston, and Southwest Houston. The Texas NOW Council established active taskforces in Rape and Textbooks. The Bay Area NOW and Kay Whyburn coordinated a successful state adoption textbook study for two years. Fran King from Fort Worth chaired the Rape Taskforce which started self defense courses and rape crisis centers in many Texas cities. In the spring of 1975 a new State Criminal Justice Taskforce was started by Marie Terry from Austin, Jacqueline Bouter from Houston, and Sheila Thomas from Dallas. So far, the New Taskforce has helped secure appointment of Selma Wells to the Board of Pardons and Paroles, Helen Copitka Commissioner, Board of Pardons and Paroles, and conducted a jail questionnaire in major Texas cities.
