NOW & Black Women’s Blueprint Launch Listening and Discussion Series
SAVE THE DATE: January 28, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Under the Trump Administration these past four years, the bold advances that women have made over the past decades, particularly those of our Black, Indigenous, Women of Color, Latinx, trans, and gender non-conforming relatives, have come under threat of regressing. We know the first 100 days are crucial in setting the tone and establishing priorities for any administration. This is why during this time, the National Organization for Women (NOW) and Black Women’s Blueprint will be bringing these voices to the forefront as part of a listening and discussion series, to share the issues that matter most to us – and the issues we need the Biden-Harris Administration to prioritize as part of a feminist agenda.
WHAT: “100 Days of a Feminist Agenda: Healing from Centuries of Oppression – Our Work is Not Done Yet” – A listening and discussion series co-hosted by NOW and Black Women’s Blueprint throughout the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris Administration and beyond
WHY: Our communities have been healing from centuries of oppression and are no longer willing to be silenced or ignored. This series will serve as space where our intersectional and radical feminism can live in action, and where we can come together, share ideas and perspectives, and make an impact on the legislation and policies we want to see moving forward.
WHEN: The series will kick off with an inaugural session on Thursday, January 28, with other dates to be scheduled throughout the coming months. Tentative schedule:
- January 28 – 323 Days of COVID: The Lasting Impact on Women
- February 11 – The Unspoken Impact of Police Brutality against BIWOC, TGNC & LatinX Communities
