INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY #IWD2020 #EachforEqual March 8, 2020 “An equal world is an enabled world. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.” IWD 2020 This year’s theme is about each one of us holding ourselves accountable and making a choice to participate in action to bring about equity for all women. With our collective efforts, we can see the impact we bring about together. SDL would like to call our sisters and allies to political action this IWD as we support Samelys Lopez’s campaign for the 15th congressional district. As a truly progressive woman of color who has been consistent in her community based work and platform, we believe she is the right person to take this office and represent the people. As progressive women of color, we must take up all the spaces we can and create our own seats at the table where we have been historically denied. This means organizing for political power to reclaim our rights.
Join us March 8th as we canvass (door-knock) with the campaign in the Bronx and have a celebratory dinner afterwards.
And just to add the campaign has been endorsed by us (SDL), Democratic Socialists of America, and just today Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s Courage to Change PAC.

We look forward to building with you all! Happy International Women’s Day! #SisterDiaspora #ALoveEthic #IWD2020
