Transcript One of the issues that we in Bay Area NOW has not addressed in accordance with National NOW policy is the issue of Minority Rights. One of our own members Colette Roberts, immediate past regional board member, has been appointed chair of the National Committe Against Racism. We shall begin with this issue to include in each Bay Area NOW Newsletter a report on Minority Women in NOW. MINORITY WOMEN IN NOW The National NOW Minority Women's Committee no longer exists! Don't get upset; it has been broadened, expanded, and made more inclusive- it is now the Committee Against Racism. The committee members will include women of all ethnic backgrounds, who are concerned with eliminating racism in and out of NOW. At the last National NOW Conference, a very powerful resolution was passed. It reads: MINORITY WOMEN RESOLUTION WHEREAS the goals of NOW to eliminate discrimination are consistent with the goals of racial minorities, WHEREAS outreach by NOW to racial minorities has continually been superceded by other priority prograns, and WHEREAS the previously adopted and established policies of NOW have been implemented by sufficient action, and WHEREAS there has been an alarming increase in violence agaiinst minorities and governmental disenfranchisement of those civil rights gains of the past decade,. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT NOW: 1. Sponsor and support participation in a counter-rally in Washington, DC in conjunction with the Anti-Klan National Network and participate in and support the August 28, 1983 major national civil rights commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Martin Luther King "I Have a Dream" statement. 2. Direst the Minority Issues staff person to work with the regions to develop regional conferences and to design programs and policy recommendations which will aid in the implementation of the action plan. 3. Create a full time administrative management position for a racial minority member who shall be responsible to the membership to promote the interests of minority women in all aspects of the organization. 4. Expand the responsibilities of the Minority Women's Conference Implementation Committee to include establishing the priority of needs for the Minority Issues staff person, based upon this resolution action plan and future adopted action plans.
