WHY A WOMEN’S ASSEMBLY?
We women will not stand by as fascists take formal control of this country. We will not stand by as they terrorize and bring fear to our local communities.
The Asamblea Popular (popular assembly) has been used by communities all over Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and across the globe as a way to convene large and diverse groups, to create a better understanding of the current moment and, most importantly, to think collectively and strategically to produce powerful actions that help advance safety in our local communities.
Join AF3IRM as we collectively discuss how to continue to protect and liberate us women, our communities and our people. In the wake of the current fascist administration, the massive women’s mobilizations, and the continued acts of public resistance, AF3IRM is calling for an ESCALATION TO ALL WOMEN’S RESISTANCE – JOIN THE FEMINIST UPRISING!
