______________________________________________________________

Future Coalition’s Gender Equity Coalition will host Femme Z, a digital direct action and
teach-in in which self-identifying women, non-binary, non-conforming, and femme activists can connect, learn, and act for change.

Femme identifying folx continue to face outrageous gender injustice to this day—women make up only 23.2% of the United States Congress, on average, Black women in the U.S. are paid 39% less than white men and 21% less than white women, the crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous women continues to plague our society, sexual harassment and assault permeate our schools & communities, the LGBTQ+GNC community still faces discrimination from employment to housing and everything in between—the list goes on.

Yet, Gen Z is an extraordinarily diverse generation with an unflinching desire to enact change. We won’t accept anything less than gender justice, and we will lead the way in this intersectional fight.

PANELS INCLUDE:

--How to Start a Movement
--How to Stand in Solidarity with the Movement for Black Lives
--What It Means to Work with the System for Criminal Justice Reform
--Divestment & Reinvestment: The Redistribution of Power and Resources in 2020
