Hundreds of people have thrown their support behind NOW, a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation for people across all industries who have been sexually harassed, assaulted or intimidated.
Launched with a crowdfunding campaign last month, NOW Australia has raised over $88,100 for the NOW Fund, including two recent donations of $10,000. The Fund will be used to connect people to the counselling and legal support they need, while creating strategies to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace for the next generation.
The campaign has a $250,000 goal.
NOW isn’t stopping at a legal fund
The organisation will also fund research and education programs, and is actively working with government, business, statutory authorities, legal and health sectors.
Over 30 entertainment figures banded together to help launch NOW, they included some of Australia’s biggest names in music like The Preatures’ Isabella Manfredi, Tina Arena, Missy Higgins, Sarah Blasko, Kate Miller-Heidke, Jenny Morris, Clare Bowditch and Katie Noonan.
