GGJ Gender Justice Committee Convening - Women's March DC 2019
GGJ marched in the Women’s March this weekend as a contingent of Grassroots Feminists uplifting our intersectional grassroots feminist movement. We marched for the thousands of Cyntoia Browns, Black women, girls, and trans people policed for their survival and serving time in prisons and jails across North America. We marched for the thousands of Berta Cáceres’s, the Indigenous women and gender non-conforming land and water defenders facing threats, intimidation, sexual assault and state violence for standing up for human rights and the rights of Mother Earth. We marched for the thousands of women and families fleeing violence and persecution in their home countries and seeking asylum in the U.S. We marched as LGBTQIA, Trans and genderqueer folks demanding respect, visibility and dignity. We marched as the overworked and underpaid, and as survivors ourselves, shoulder to shoulder with the thousands of survivors of violence finding our collective voice against the epidemic of rape culture and the oppression of patriarchy at all levels of our society. Not only did we come together in D.C to march this weekend, but we came together to gain a deeper understanding of Grassroots Feminism and form a deeper commitment to the work. We spent the weekend envisioning and expanding what a grassroots feminist economy can look like through political education and group discussion about how to achieve a grassroots feminist future through a Just Transition. We will keep marching, until ALL of us are free. #GrassrootsFeminism #WorldMarchofWomen #GGJAlliance
