2013 March Meeting – Going to a Rally

UCDW’s March Meeting is a Rally!

To commemorate International Women’s Day UCDW joins the rally to DEFEND WOMEN’S RIGHTS.

Thursday, March 7 at 6:30 PM (This will serve as our UCDW March Meeting)
SUNY Campus, Lecture Center Hall 100
New Paltz, NY

Women’s rights are STILL under attack. What can we do? Stand up, fight back! Volunteer to staff the UCDW table or just come to hear the speakers. Email us at event@ucdw.org.

Dozens of community, labor, feminist, peace, justice, political and college organizations are backing this Mid-Hudson regional commemoration of International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 7. Rallies are taking place in many U.S. towns, called nationally by Women Organized to Resist and Defend.

To continued conservative attacks on women’s rights, we respond:
Stop Violence Against Women, Stop the War on Women’s Rights, Defend Reproductive Justice, Full Equality for all Women Workers!

Speakers, singers, poets and videos will express these demands at the rally. There will be plenty of information and ideas to take home and use.

Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation AFL-CIO, United University Professions AFL-CIO (SUNY NP), New Paltz Women in Black, Amnesty International (local branch), Bard College Student Labor Dialogue, Washbourne House (women and children’s shelter), Orange County Democratic Women, Ulster County Democratic Women (UCDW), Sociology Dept.
