Transcript FROM YOUR PRESIDENT: Since I took office in January, our chapter of NOW has been very involved in many different activities. I have attended many meetings, functions and workships. The executive committe and I have met on the average of once a week to determine the needs and the actions of our organization. We have approved a budget, planned two fundraisers, and a monthly program for the next six months. We now have three active task forces and a liaison between the Clear Lake Rape Crisis Center and NOW. We have set up letter writing sessions every other Saturday morning and a publicity campaign for our organization. We became sucessfully involved in the Women's Clinic vigil during some of the coldest weather this season. Some of us had midnight shifts, but Rema Lou Brown monitored the C.B. from her house and she did not sleep for five days! We have just finished judging the high school essay contest to celebrate Women's History Week. This whole event took many hours from some of our members lives, (letter writing, follow up phone calls, judging, etc.) The prizes will be awarded at our pot luck dinner on thursday the 11th at 6:30. I hope most of you will be there to help celebrate our history and to encourage young people to do the same. The legislative days is Austin were very interesting. The first day was dedicated to workshops on current issues related to women. The highlite of the day for me was Ann Richard's speeck. She is an inpiration to me. On the second day we were briefed by Mary Cauk, our NOW lobbiest in Austin, on the different pending bills in the house and the senate. After that, we visited every senator in the committe that has bill s.b. 129 (restricting the right to choose an abortion) I wish everyone of you could have been there.. It felt great to leave messages or to talk to each senator on this subject. The pronography conference sponsored by the Houston Women's Center was educational and very revealing. I have always been against pornography^ however, after this conference, I am a radical. We must take action on this subject, as individuals, as well as an organization. I am asking each one of you to visit your nearest Video store and see what type of material is on display. If it is degrading to Women, in any way, ask the owner of the store to remove it. Please keep the executive committe informed cf the results. Some of you may have read about Susie Factor, a young woman accused by two Houston undercover police agent of trying to sell "3" Continued on Page ^ \ 4
