PGHM8 International Women’s Strike Planning Session

February 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us to continue planning the 2018 International Women’s Strike Pittsburgh/ Paro Internacional de Mujeres Pittsburgh. Venue is accessible. Childcare is available. Please reach out with any additional accommodations.

We seek to mobilize grassroots groups, organizations, collectives, and coalitions. We encourage you to come with ideas for creative actions, strikes, walkouts, a rally and march.

This year the Pittsburgh International Women’s Strike Coalition is proud to work alongside the Women’s Law Project to highlight the urgent need for paid sick leave, especially among women who work low-wage jobs, women of color, queer and trans women, parents, caregivers, and victims of domestic abuse. The Paid Sick Days Act will be reviewed by the PA Supreme Court later this year.
