Stop Violence Against Women

Chicago NOW is committed ending violence against women locally and internationally.

The CNOW Action Team focuses on all issues that bring violence into women’s lives in Chicago and beyond. These include and are not limited to:

  • Domestic Violence
  • Violence Against Women in the Street Economy
  • Gang Violence
  • Sexual Violence
  • Harassment
  • Violence Committed by Police
  • Teen Violence (dating violence, bullying, etc)
  • Violence Against Incarcerated Women
  • Anti-LGBT Violence

We are also interested in international concerns specifically war, honor killings, female genital mutilation, and other culturally accepted forms of violence. If you are interested in addressing these issues in Chicago and beyond, please consider joining our CNOW Action Team.

We also want to amplify and highlight organizations and resources helping to end violence against women in Chicago and beyond. If you or your organization has an event or resource you wish to highlight, please contact the CNOW Board at chicagonow.org@gmail.com.
