New York WORD networking and movement building BBQ! 
WORD (Women Organizing to Resist and Defend) is a newly formed coalition of women and allies organizing to fight back against the attacks on our rights.
We want to let the politicians of both major parties know that we will not stand by while women's rights are under attack. Join us!  
Also...October 16th       Save the Date!
Come hear about upcoming word actions at this Sunday's BBQ including a rally outside the presidential debate on October 16th. Women's rights are not bargaining chips! Demand accountability from both parties.
WORD Demands...
  • Full reproductive rights now: Access to safe, legal abortion and birth control – on demand. We want healthcare that covers these services and access to it for all women. We want the information that we need to stay healthy, including an end to abstinence-only sex education in our schools.
  • Defend women in the workplace: Close the wage gap and provide equal pay for equal work. All jobs must offer maternity leave and stop penalizing working mothers. End sexual harassment at work.
  • Stop the budget cuts: Cutting federal and state social services punishes poor women. We demand government funding for social services that millions of working and poor women depend on.
  • We want full equality and respect now: Fight racism, sexism and anti-LGBT bigotry. Stop the exploitation and commercialization of women in mass media. An injury to one is an injury to all!
