This International Women’s Day, we call for a world without weapons and war, without violence and hate. Trump has announced his desire to increase the military budget, let us take this opportunity of communities coming together to celebrate women and say Feminism Not Militarism! Join us as we #RiseLoveResist in DC!
The afternoon action will feature live testimony and rallying cries from a diversity of voices, performances, videos, a flash mob, poetry, music, and much more, including Climbing PoeTree, Eve Ensler, Sophorn Yang, D.C. Labor Chorus, and more. Through an artistic uprising, collective expression and creative resistance, women workers and artists will share personal powerful moving testimonies. We will come together to witness and listen to women who hold this country up but often remain invisible.
Presented by One Billion Rising in Coalition with Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, the African American Policy Forum, American Federation of Teachers, Family Values @ Work, International Labor Rights Forum, Jobs with Justice, National Nurses United, National Domestic Workers Alliance, National Organization for Women, OUR Walmart, and more.
Jodie, Medea, Paki and the CODEPINK team
