This March 8th, join us in reclaiming International Women's Day and honoring its radical legacy. We are speaking out against sexism, racism, colonialism, capitalism and exploitation. We are coming together to listen to each other, heal, celebrate our resistance and invigorate our movement. In the spirit of the International Women's Strike, we join women and non binary people worldwide in the fight for:
- an end to gender violence
- freedom from borders
- reproductive justice for all
- labor rights
- environmental justice for all
- an antiracist and anti-imperialist feminism

Come ready to speak and listen as we affirm our collective power!
