NOW's Purpose

NOW’s purpose is to take action through intersectional grassroots activism to promote feminist ideals, lead societal change, eliminate discrimination, and achieve and protect the equal rights of all women and girls in all aspects of social, political, and economic life.

Current FL NOW Board

The five FL NOW Board members have been working hard as we adjust to the changes of 2020! Our board has collectively been impacted by illness, hospitalizations, being an essential worker,  and having family members impacted, and die of Covid 19.  We are proud of the work we have done to stand for National NOW's Statement of purpose.  We are the 5 that called for Toni Van Pelt to resign, and we solidly believe that is 100% the right call. We look forward to your support as move forward with important work our NOW Core issues are all about!

Kim Porteous She/Her/Hers
FL NOW President

I am unapologetically passionate about standing for Intersectional Feminism, NOW Core Issues and Empowering Intersectional Leaders.

Melina Rayna Barratt She/Her/Hers
FL NOW Legislative Director

Melina was not only FL NOW's first transgender woman to serve on the board, she just made Florida history in becoming the first Transgender person to qualify to run for the Florida Senate! We are so excited to be part of her historic journey.

Linda Guillotti She/Her/Hers
Acting Treasure / Membership Co Chair

I hope to see the future of FL NOW as one where there are never moments of discriminatory actions. That includes actions that with or without intent hurt as if the incident were the hundredth paper cut one receives because that is exactly how they are felt. I hope to see a Florida NOW that no matter what race or identity one has, they will automatically know that they are welcome, respected, and loved. I want FL NOW and NOW as a whole, to heal, grow, and expand, in mind, body, and spirit. I believe that together we can do so much more to fight against those who want us to be divided so that they can maintain their power, at our expense. I am a Latinx lesbian survivor leader, social work student, who seeks to gain a place at the table, not just for me, but for those who have suffered like me and yet more for those who have struggled more than me. I will bring my tenacity to Florida NOW as I always have, my talents as a community organizer, and my exceptional resilience to fight for a just world.

Pamala Wilson She/Her/Hers
Communications Director

I am invested in building a future NOW that is deeply committed to being an INTERSECTIONAL feminist organization. Our work should always reflect the understanding that true inclusion embraces the complex relationships that exist between gender, race, and the other ways in which discrimination happens, whether it’s based on age, socioeconomic status, ability, gender or sexual identity, religion, or ethnicity. We need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable while facing the ways in which our place in the world contributes to the marginalization of others and work together to redefine outdated models of feminist ideals. I am excited about who we are becoming.
