Making Herstory at the 2018 Women’s March
NOW-NYC proudly co-sponsored and led more than one hundred activists to the Women’s March NYC on January 20th to show the Trump administration that we are still resisting and persisting, joining hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers, and millions across the US and the world. 2018 marks a critical year for women and families – with the mid-term elections, the current DACA crisis, Trump’s controversial policy changes, attacks on women’s health and more.
On #WeekendofWomen, we saw a renewed sense of feminist activism. NOW-NYC recognizes the significance of 2018 for civil rights and women’s equality – and the timing of #MeToo and the mobilization of social justice allies is quite powerful. We look forward to a year of resistance and we intend to keep the momentum going.
We believe this year, women will make herstory. More women are running for office than ever before and need our support to get out the vote. Join NOW-NYC this year to campaign for strong, feminist leaders and lobby for progressive state and national legislation. Let’s make 2018 the Year of Women!
We kicked off the year with our Anti-Trafficking Lobby Day, taking a hundred activists to DC to lobby Congress in support of the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA) – and that was just the beginning. This spring, we invite you to join us on our Lobby Day to Albany to pass important New York state legislation to address sexual harassment, protect reproductive rights, and support survivors of rape and sexual assault.
Join a Fight Back NOW Team to mobilize with NOW activists in your district to create progressive change and elect pro-woman leaders.
Support NOW by becoming a member here.
We extend a special thank you to all who participated in the Women’s March NYC in solidarity for the rights of women and girls and for all and who joined us at the VoteRunLead event.
