March 8 is International Women’s Day!

There are protests and marches called in 40 different countries around the world and at least 30 different cities in the US. We fight for an end to gender violence, especially towards working women, trans women, and women of color. The strike also calls for reproductive justice, labor rights, environmental justice for all and full social provisioning. Lastly, it seeks to build an anti-racist, anti-imperialist and all-inclusive.
