There is a war against women raging across the country. Presidential candidates are speaking out in opposition to basic contraception. Anti-woman legislators around the country are trying to put more and more barriers between women and their reproductive rights. Wisconsin’s governor just pushed through a repeal of his state’s Equal Pay Enforcement Act. Even here in New York, we are having difficulty pushing a pro-woman agenda forward.

Join us for an evening of basic training to learn what you can do to stop the War Against Women. Speakers include:

  • Senator Liz Krueger: New York State Senator, 26th Senate District
  • Jessica Valenti: Author and Founder, Feministing.com
  • Joe Rollins: Associate Professor and Executive Officer, The Graduate Center of CUNY and Queens College
  • Jamia Wilson: Vice-President of Programs, Women’s Media Center
  • Amy Richards: Author and Feminist Activst, Soapboxinc.com
