This election was a stunning reminder of how white supremacy and sexism run deep and threaten our basic democracy. That white working class people continue to identify with the capitalist 1% who are responsible for the pain in our daily lives.
While Clinton got the popular vote, a bigoted billionaire bully has taken the top spot in our country as a nightmare backlash against our first African-American President. NWL commits to build a resistance movement and stand up for justice. We need you.
Now is not the time to retreat and lick our wounds.
All of us are under threat, but in particular we stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters, our undocumented and people of color brothers and sisters.
But standing alone is not enough - we need to be ORGANIZED.
Today join a group. Go to meetings. Invest your time and your money in making social change - make it part of your life.
NWL is meeting in New York, NY and Florida to discuss what to do next. Please join us.

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?
