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!
WHEN: March 8th, 2017, 3:30-5:30pm
WHERE: Labor Department, 500 C St NW, Washington DC
We call people to come and be in solidarity with Muslim and migrant women, women of color, working and unemployed women, lesbian, gender nonconforming and trans women – for an end to violence in the workplace and other spaces. We oppose the institutional, political, cultural and economic attacks on women and other peoples. We say "Feminism Not Militarism!" This rally will be on the day – and in solidarity with - women around the world rising for women’s rights, including the International Women’s Action and The Women’s March: A Day Without a Woman.
This 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.
*Women is an inclusive term reflecting all those who identify as female.
