We’re on our way to our goal of raising $5000 for the National
Domestic Workers Alliance Coronavirus Care Fund. Can you join us? Contribute
here! OWMCL is partnering with NDWA to provide immediate financial support
to domestic workers during this crisis. The National Domestic Workers Alliance
is a coalition of organizations representing overwhelmingly working-class and
poor women of color, who experience many layers of oppression and are at
heightened risk during the COVID-19 pandemic. All money from the Coronavirus
Care Fund is given directly to workers facing economic crisis and who are
frequently left out of government support programs. Please donate
today and share widely!
Sports fans! We’ve all watched and listened
to sports talk shows: lots of white men calling in to ask questions and voice
their opinions, right? Now imagine that show, minus the toxic masculinity and
“all lives matter” racial politics. Join some white guys for collective
liberation to talk about sports on The Dugout,
a liberatory sports “talk show” [Jun 3, 2020 03:30 PM in Pacific
here [for the second episode. The first episode opened with a
discussion of the killing of Ahmaud Arbery by white supremacist vigilantes.]
White men can simply go for a jog, while black men like Arbery risk white
supremacist violence protected by the criminal justice system for “running while
black” (please sign Color of Change’s #JusticeForAhmaud
petition to have District Attorneys George Barnhill &
Jackie Johnson REMOVED from office). Other possible topics: Is Betsy DeVos
gutting Title IX (WTF)?… The Patriots drafted Justin Rohrwasser. The kicker?
He’s a white supremacist… Gritty is a beloved leftist icon, but can they help
smash the patriarchy? Like sports? Got thoughts? Join
