Asian/Pacific American Heritage month online meeting

Fighting anti-Asian racism during the COVID crisis and beyond

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in anti-China sentiments and upsurge in violence against Asian/Pacific Islanders. While Trump refers to it as “the Chinese virus”, assaults are on the rise. Hear from two activist speakers about why this is happening and what we can do about it.

Sophia Lee is a 1.5th generation Korean American immigrant transgender woman. Board chair of Gender Justice League and advocate for various issues including LGBTQ, immigrant and feminist causes.

Nancy Reiko Kato is a Japanese American socialist feminist activist. Author of "Women of Color: Frontrunners for Freedom", leader in National Comrades of Color Caucus and unionist with AFSCME 3299 in Bay Area.

Online reading circle: Wednesdays, beginning April 8

Radical Optimism in a Time of Crisis

Counter the isolating side effects of social distancing! Join Radical Women’s online discussion series to develop a socialist feminist critique of capitalist patriarchy. The group will focus on three pamphlets: “Women's Bodies are a Battlefield: Reproductive Justice, Climate Change and the Refugee Crisis,” “Ecosocialism: The Solution for Survival on Planet Earth," “Estamos en la Lucha: Immigrant Women Light the Fires of Resistance” and new Radical Women writings on women and the COVID-19 crisis. These accessible readings by activists document key problems, their impact on women and other oppressed people, and how to fight back. Optimism, connection, and ideas for the future are needed now more than ever. All are welcome to attend.

Wednesday evenings, 6:30-8:00pm Please register in advance here.
Radical Women will send you a copy of the readings.
