We made it!
Four years ago it felt like the Trump administration nightmare was never going to end. But on Tuesday we watched as the first South Asian and Black woman was sworn in as our 46th Vice President. We know this does not mean that white supremacy will suddenly disappear, but we are hopeful for the future that is ahead of us with this administration.
We head into this administration with hopeful words from the youngest Poet Laureate, and the youngest inaugural poet, Amanda Gorman: “That even as we grieved, we grew,/ That even as we hurt, we hoped,/ That even as we tried, we tried,/ That we’ll forever be tied together, victorious- / Not because we will never again know defeat / But because we will never again sow division.”

Now Starting Monthly Chapter Meetings!
In an effort to build a more intentional community and movement, our monthly chapter meeting will be for members only. Join us on the last Wednesday of every month to hear updates on our legislative agenda and participate in consciousness raisings with our diverse, multi-generational feminist community. Over dessert and wine, we strengthen our personal narratives and learn how to take action on our feminist agenda. This month we’re talking about periods and menstrual equity with our coalition partners from the Menstrual Equity Coalition.
Become a member today for any amount to gain access and hear from some amazing social justice warriors throughout the Commonwealth fighting for equality for all! Grab our mocktails and meet us on Zoom on Wednesday January 27th from 6-8PM.
