Radical Women wholeheartedly supports the presidential write-in campaign by socialist feminist candidates Stephen Durham (President) and Christina López (Vice-President), running on the Freedom Socialist Party ticket. We are delighted to endorse candidates who are not corporate-controlled and who offer concrete solutions to the problems faced by working and poor women. Durham and López are a respected activist team whose platform prioritizes civil rights issues for people of color, women, immigrants, queers and workers.
Ms. López is a leader on the Radical Women National Executive Committee. She is the author of the forthcoming Radical Women (RW) pamphlet Estamos en la Lucha: Immigrant Women Light the Fires of Resistance, which focuses on the impact of U.S. immigration policies on women and children and highlights the central role of immigrant women in this country. As president of the Seattle Radical Women chapter for the last six years, she initiated RW's Sisters Organize for Survival grassroots campaign, which has fought state budget cuts and layoffs of public workers.
