Transcript DECEMBER 1974 NEWSLETTER Page.3 _____ _____i_____'_ ______ Dear Texas NOW Members, The Texas NOW Council met November 2nd In Huntsville, with representatives from the Huntsville, Houston, Bay Area, Temple, Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio chapters. I was elected Texas NOW ERA Coordinator. I have applied for National ERA fund money for Texas. I have asked Kathleen To, 902-D S. Weatherred, Richardson, TX 75080, to serve as State ERA Finance Coordinator. She will serve In this capacity until the Council elects her or someone else at the next Council meeting. The Council will meet on Saturday, January 11 (Just before the Legislature convenes on Jan. 15), at 1C am in Austin, at the Austin Women's Center. The State B 4 P W President and the State League of Women Voters are still not sure when the statewide ERA Coalition will meet. I will let each NOW chapter president know when and where this meeting will be, and also whether it will be open to all our members or only to delegates. I hope all NOW chapters in Texas have placed ERA efforts as their No. 1 priority. San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas have already established local ERA Coalitions. At the November Council meeting, Kay Whyburn from the Houston chapter was elected State Communication Coordinator. She is contacting the TWPC about our commitment in principle to a state women's lobbyist for the upcoming legislative session. If your chapter would like to make a monthly financial commitment to support a lobbyist for women's issues in Austin, please contact Kay at 3602 Milam, Houston, TX 77002, or call her at (713) 667-8556. Jane Hodge, 204 Elisabeth Drive, Del Rio, TX 78640, called last week asking Texas NOW members to contact her with cases of bank employment discrimination. The Del Bio chapter plans to file a suit against all Texas banks if they can secure enough evidence. At the National NOW Board meeting in Denver, the Board spent several hours approving national task forces and advising and consenting to Karen DeCrow's appointments to Coordinators for Task Forces. New task forces for Women In Prison and Women in our Economic System were created; the Masculine Mystique and Insurance task forces were abolished. The Board also spent many hours discussing procurement (granting of NOW business contracts). A motion finally passed which gives our national office staff more power in letting contracts. I voted against this motion since I believe that you elected the Board to make NOW business contract decisions, not the staff whioh we hire. Good news - Karen DeCrow is expected to Join us for our State Convention on March 7-9, at the Sheraton Crest Hotel in Austin. -If you would like to work on the convention plannlag committee, please contact Barbara Duke, 1907 David St., Austin, TX 78705, of call her at (512) 476-0510. Keep up all the great NOW work, Martha Dickey Current Austin NOW Task Force Coordinators Coordinator of Task Forces Donna Walker-Ashwor_h. 441-2528 Broadcasting and FCC Vlckl Gierspeck 447-2523 Child Care Molly Hill 478-1581 Consclousness-Raislng Nancy Van Beek 836-0848 Criminal Justice Rita O'Brien 345-0839 Legislation Janet Boles 451-3443 Masculine Mystique Chris Durden 452-3616 Rape Laura Brookshire 459-8125 Reproduction and Population Mlcheline Fountain 451-3368 Women and Religion Rachael Wahlberg 459-0309 Women and Sports Dorothy Samuelson 477-6873
