    Global Black Caucus Book Club IV

     

    Come join us as we review and discuss "How we get free: Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective" edited by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. The Combahee collective were a group of radical black feminists that emerged during the 1960's and 70's. The leaders of this group, as well as contemporary activists, reflect and discuss how black feminism has been instrumental in shaping today's social and political movements. We hope to see you again at Cafe Phil in the new year! *Please remember to bring a donation for the Equal Justice Initiative. (Our next book in February will be "Just Mercy: A story of Justice and Redemption" by Bryan Stevenson)

    Women's March 2019 – Passing the Equal Rights Amendment

    A wave of women will be sworn into Congress this month, but did you know that women still don’t have constitutional protection of their rights? Unbelievably, the law that was passed by Congress in 1972 has not yet been ratified. Only one more state is needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Now, 47 years later, it has a viable chance of being passed, which is why now is the time to increase awareness and demand full constitutional equality for women!

    Over the weekend of January 19-20, 2019, DA members will be joining numerous groups in marches, vigils, and rallies for another Women’s March.

    The theme this year is “Stop Violence Against Women.” Democrats Abroad Austria will join the DA Global Women’s caucus and the Equal Means Equalorganization and focus on achieving this goal by working through our legal system to secure equality under the law.

    While we’ve held a march and a rally the last two years, we'll be bringing it indoors on January 19 and will host a screening of the NYT Critics’ Pick Legalize Equalityto help get the conversation going about the importance of the ERA. After the film we’ll discuss the issues and write postcards to the governors and/or attorneys general of the states that have not yet ratified this critical amendment.

    Join us this on January 19 as Democrats Abroad Austria once again puts our words into action!

    Some members from Graz are planning to travel to Vienna together for the event. Please contact Caitlin Ahern (database@democratsabroad.at) if you're in Carinthia or Styria and would like to travel together!

    Specific ERA podcast episodes: The Equal Rights Amendment in 2018” by The 1A from NPR and Equal Rights Amendment” by Unladylike
