Join us on the 10th and 24th of July (Thursday) from 7-9pm at the Coffee Planet. Meet the team, have some coffee and makes some calls to others progressives to get involved.
We discuss the political news of the day and how it impacts our Issues and events coming up and make calls to invite others to come. Don’t like making calls, come and write letters to the editor-LTE, or help make posters if there’s a rally coming up.
Please call Sara 847-372-5594 to confirm so we know how many lists to bring.
Women are currently the main breadwinner in a record-high 40 percent of households, but on everything from paid leave to fair pay, our workplace policies too often don’t reflect today’s realities.
Now our national focus is on economic issues including equal pay, raising the minimum wage, family leave, affordable child care. On Monday July 14th we will be petitioning the Arlington Heights and Schaumburg Libraries and gathering petitions at the Palatine Train Station.
We’ll be in the entrance to the Arlington Heights library from the garage by the elevators. Those going to the Schaumburg Library will be outside on the sidewalk leading to the main entrance but need to not be by the doors. Palatine Train Station-best time is during the morning commute from 7:00-8:30. Call Sara to get copies of the petition and more details. 847-372-5594 Shifts are 2-4,4-6,6-8
NWSOFA is a whole, diverse wonderful family of people who want to do more than talk about the social issues. We explore and dig deep on the facts and decide what actions we can take that can have an impact locally and nationally. NWSOFA members not only “talk the talk”, but we “walk the walk”.
All our teams have numerous events that will enlighten and inspire you and yes, challenge you to make the effort to make a difference.
We invite you to join us!
A Special Message to All!!
We hope that all of our almost 2,000 members had a wonderful 4th of July and used the day to remember why it is such an important day for America, and celebrated our FREEDOM with friends and family.

It’s time to Act .. It Is Time To Get Involved
Over the years the American Citizens have lost their voices, believing that we can not make a difference. We have been beat down by the constant droning noise of the conservative right. This onslaught has made us like sheep .. afraid to express our views. Not anymore! OFA gives us back our voices and by working together we are making change one issue at a time. Together we can and will make a difference.
Thank You to our NWSOFA Issue Leads for 2014 !!
