Third Tuesday - NWL Monthly Meeting
Topic: Sexist Election Coverage
When: Tues., October 18th from 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: The Commons in Brooklyn, 388 Atlantic Avenue
Are you sick of women being judged by what we wear? How we sound? Coverage of the Clinton campaign has laid bare sexist double standards on a national scale. At our October meeting we will discuss the "damned if you, damned if you don't" moments we experience in our own lives, and how we can create a stronger feminist movement to change this.
Next month joins us for a Post-Election Meeting!
Tues., November 15th from 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
What do the results mean for the feminist movement? How do we move forward to win lasting changes for women?

Quarterly Meeting for Women of Color
Thursday, November 3, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Join us for a discussion about when and how we as women of color work in coalition with our allies within and across movements for social justice.
We will be discussing the following readings:
Bernice Johnson Reagon. "Coalition Politics: Turning the Century." Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology. Ed. Barbara Smith. 356-368.
Rosario Morales. "We're All In The Same Boat." This Bridge Called My Back: Writings By Radical Women of Color. Eds. Cherrie Moraga and Gloria Anzaldua. 91-93.

While voting in our system is not the powerful tool the Woman's Suffrage Movement hoped it would be, it's still an important tool of defense-especially this year for stopping Donald Trump. Trump threatens a century of gains for women's liberation, civil rights, and the labor movement.
We have to face that in the current unfair election system we have only two candidates who will be able to get into power. As Alicia Garza of Black Lives Matter says, "I am not voting for candidates, I am voting for terrain."
