Florida Feminist Organizing School
Tuesday, May 29th @ 5pm - Friday, June 1 @ 6pm
We are excited to announce dates for this year’s Florida Feminist Organizing School (FOS)! Tuesday, May 29th @ 5pm - Friday, June 1 @ 6pm. For anyone interested in building a future grounded in gender justice, this is an opportunity not to be missed! The application will be circulated next week. Space is limited, so mark your calendars today!
Today marks the 109th year anniversary of International Women’s Day (IWD)! Around the world people are celebrating how far we have come, but also reflecting on all that is left to do in the fight for gender justice. As the current dialogue about women’s rights continues to grow, as shown by the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, we want to be sure to push the conversation further. Today, and always, we honor the long and global history of feminist resistance and we emphasize the importance of reclaiming feminism for the grassroots.
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.
APPLICATIONS DUE MARCH 15th
From climate disaster to mass displacement, our communities are at the frontlines of building resilient resistance and taking direct action to transform our world. From JUNE 1 - 5, It Takes Roots and the Ruckus Society are bringing together leaders from across our alliances for our first of its kind Direct Action & Community Resiliency Camp outside of Orlando, FL.
FOR GGJ MEMBERS: 2018 is already off to a powerful start as we see waves of actions from the Dreamers to the #MeToo movement mobilizing across the country. This will be a critical year for our grassroots movements on so many different fronts of struggle.
We invite you to a special GGJ all member call on Wednesday, February 7th. We will hold this same call twice at 2 different times to offer more opportunities for as many members as possible. Organizers and member leaders are all invited to participate.

Over the past year, with the rise of right-wing populism, white nationalism and increased hate violence, our movements have taken on a higher level of cross-sector coordination, greater alignment of grassroots alliances and national dialogue and action on racism, sexism, xenophobia.
