Portland International Women’s Day

March 8 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

International Women’s Day
MARCH 8 CELEBRATION

In the spirit of renewed radicalism, solidarity and internationalism, the International Women’s Strike US continues to be an organizing center by and for women who have been marginalized and silenced by decades of neoliberalism directed towards the 99% of women: working women inside and outside of the home, women of color, Native women, disabled women, immigrant women, Muslim women, lesbian, cis, queer and trans women. We see our efforts as part of a new international feminist movement that organizes resistance not just against Trump and his misogynist policies, but also against the conditions that produced Trump, namely the decades long economic inequality, criminalization and policing, racial and sexual violence, and imperial wars abroad.

Women across the world are leading labor and political strikes. Come hear about them 🙂
We will rally at 4 in Pioneer Courthouse Square; Speakers, tables, press. At 5 we march to Salmon Street Springs Fountain. Legal observer and security teams are lined up.
