FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The National Organization for Women (NOW) Political Action Committee endorses Kathleen Williams

Bozeman, MT — Five days after receiving the endorsement of the American Women’s Party, the Williams for Congress campaign is pleased to announce that the National Organization for Women (NOW) PAC has endorsed Kathleen Williams in the race for Montana’s lone Congressional seat.

Announcing the endorsement, Linda Berg, national political director for NOW, said: “NOW PAC is thrilled to endorse Kathleen Williams, who has a strong record of standing up for women’s rights in Montana. We can’t wait for her to bring her expertise to Washington, where it is dearly needed.”

Jan Strout, President of the Montana State Chapter of NOW, concurred:

“Principled and progressive women’s leadership is needed now more than ever. The calls to action from the Montana Women’s Marches supported by Congressional candidate Kathleen Williams can only bode well for the diversity of women, the men who love us, our communities and our planet. This vision for inclusion and justice for all, coupled with Kathleen’s depth of legislative and advocacy experience, motivate Montana NOW members as well as many other Montanans to offer her the strongest support!”

Accepting NOW’s endorsement, Kathleen Williams said: “I am absolutely honored to earn this endorsement. Throughout my career, I have stood up for reproductive rights, economic justice, and ending all forms of violence and discrimination against women and girls. I poured my heart and soul into those fights in the Montana Legislature, and I will not back down from them in Congress.”

The National Organization for Women is the largest organization of feminist grassroots activists in the United States. Founded in 1966, NOW has been at the forefront of advocating for women and girls, racial equality, and the rights and sovereignty of Indigenous people for over fifty years. Among its twenty-eight original founders are such legendary figures as Shirley Chisholm, Betty Friedan, and Pauli Murray. Today, NOW has hundreds of chapters and hundreds of thousands of members and activists in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
