 The Women's Movement Today: Understanding the Challenges/Renewing our Commitment

Sponsored by Western Mass. Code Pink Women for Peace

When: Saturday, March 9th 5:30pm – 9:00pm

Where: Lyman Hall at First Churches, 129 Main StNorthampton

What: There will be a showing of a 30 minute segment of Democracy Now as Amy Goodman interviews leaders of the Women’s March about the documentary “This is Personal” featuring Linda Sarsour (M-Power), Tamika Mallory (Black Lives Matter) and Nancy Kaufman (CEO National Council of Jewish Women).  They dissect some of the complex issues of the January, 2019 Women’s March, issues that were additionally complicated by media ‘clickbait’ rather than realistic news and analysis of the issues.

A facilitated panel discussion will follow about how differences within our movement mirror the larger society and how we can protect the Women’s Movement from becoming splintered, from within, as well as by attacks from 'outside'. 

Potluck supper at 5:30 PM;  Program begins at 6:45 PM
