This election was a stunning reminder of how white supremacy and sexism run deep and threaten our basic democracy. That white working class people continue to identify with the capitalist 1% who are responsible for the pain in our daily lives.
While Clinton got the popular vote, a bigoted billionaire bully has taken the top spot in our country as a nightmare backlash against our first African-American President. NWL commits to build a resistance movement and stand up for justice. We need you.
Now is not the time to retreat and lick our wounds.
All of us are under threat, but in particular we stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters, our undocumented and people of color brothers and sisters.
But standing alone is not enough - we need to be ORGANIZED.
Today join a group. Go to meetings. Invest your time and your money in making social change - make it part of your life.
NWL is meeting in New York, NY and Florida to discuss what to do next. Please join us.

Post-Election Meeting for Women of Color
Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Join us for a Consciousness-Raising Meeting to discuss the impact of the election on you. We will answer the following questions:
1. What has been the effect of the election campaign on your life? What effect has the outcome of the election had on you?
2. What are you doing and what do you think the feminist movement should be doing?
We will also continue discussing how we as women of color work in coalition with our allies within and across movements for social change.
