“A Day Without a Woman,” “A Day Without Immigrants,” “May 1 General Strike” – these calls for mass protest have abounded since Trump occupied the White House. What is their meaning for women, the multi-racial labor force, immigrants and refugees? The meeting will analyze the March 8 women’s rights actions and what they signified. Learn why strikes are called “workers’ most powerful weapon” and discover women’s leadership in past labor upsurges. Get informed about local and national collaboration between immigrant rights groups and unions in building for walkouts on May Day – to protest Trump’s attacks on medical care, elders, immigrants, women and labor. Find out how you can help!

Hearty dinner, with vegan options, served at 6:30pm for $8.50 donation.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
