Who Are We?
“How can we be together in a unity that is complex and emancipatory?” asked Professor Angela Davis. We hope to answer her by coalition building, in solidarity with OWS / OWSP & more.
We are a collective planning for a visible day of solidarity. We are a collective planning for a visible day of solidarity. We as coalition specifically hope to address the ways this unlivable economy has promoted sexism, racism, classism, trans-misogyny, the legacy of colonialism and has furthered the mounting war on unions and women’s health. Rather than work on behalf of women or we are a group of many working to unite and empower with regard to an vast intersection of issues.
What Are We Doing?
We have called for a day of solidarity where we explicitly focus on the voices unheard. We must provide a space for those voices to be amplified as they have for too long been silenced. We will have personal testimonies from the vast communities affected by this economy and corporate greed. We now have the opportunity to join together and challenge those who profit from these excessive barriers. We demand that the media, corporations, government, and the global community take notice.
Why Doing This?
On Sunday, October 16th, we began a dialogue approaching feminism and gender equality and the links between violence against women and the structural injustices the lead to the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Eve Ensler helped Arielle Cohen and Melanie Butler facilitate an open dialogue with a huge group of people equally as impassioned but varied in every way. We have continue to meet weekly.
