From the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements to the Women’s March, resistance in the name of women’s rights has been gaining momentum in the US. We at GGJ, are organizing a social media mini-campaign to push the conversation further, and we are asking you to join us! Our goal is to shed light on grassroots feminism and the reality that our organizing struggles, from housing to climate to anti-militarization, are deeply connected to the fight against patriarchy.

Join us this Saturday, August 19th as we Confront White Supremacy from Charlottesville to the White House.
The events in Charlottesville are not an anomaly; they are happening all over America. In cities like Durham, Tampa and New Orleans, people are organizing to take down racist monuments. Symbols of white supremacy take different forms; for some it is a monument, for others it’s street name or campus building. For many it is an institution that continues to inflict harm on their people.
