According to the Finding Aid document, this folder contains newsletters from Escambia County NOW from 1982.[1]

Overview

There are only a few documents in this folder and it is difficult to make conclusions about the chapter. It appears as though the chapter was primarily affiliated with the local YWCA and the Pensacola Women's Resource Center. From these newsletters, the chapter seems to be relatively active and has many events relating to women's empowerment. There is no information about convening or dissolution of the chapter in this folder.
