Women and Climate Change

Friday March 20, 7pm

Carriage House Theater, Hartford Ct.

A Socialist Action Forum for Women’s History Month

The movements for climate justice, reproductive justice, and food sovereignty must go forward together or they will not go forward at all. But powerful elite figures like Bill Gates falsely claim population growth is a cause of global warming. They are resuscitating highly misogynist and coercive contraception programs in Africa. Equally elite forces are displacing women subsistence farmers for corporate profit globally.
These forces are trying to drive a wedge between the movement against global warming and women’s movements worldwide.
In the US, the climate movement is just beginning to understand the strategic necessity of linking up with women of color and feminist organizations who are against population control ideology. We must repudiate the attempt to blame poor and working class females and families for the environmental disaster that really flows from the economic for-profit system. Instead we must recognize that an alliance with working and farming women from all over the world, whose ability to provide political leadership grows with their reproductive autonomy and economic control over their lives, is a prerequisite for victory. Join us for a panel and discussion on these issues.

Hear:
Jessa Mae Orluk, Environmental & Reproductive Justice Fellow, PopDev Program, Hampshire College

Claudine Fox, Workforce Development Program Manager at the Community Health Association of CT, formerly Outreach Coordinator at Hartford Food Systems

Christine Marie, feminist, climate justice activist, leader of CT Socialist Action

The Fight for $15: Low Wage Workers Rising Up!

Thursday, March 26, 6pm.

Semesters Student Center, Central Connecticut State University, New Britain Ct.

The Fight for $15: Low Wage Workers Rising Up

Spring Speaking Tour of Low wage workers:

For years the assault on the lives of workers especially in the Black and Latino communities by wealthy corporations has driven more and more in to poverty. Now low wage workers across the U.S. are standing up and fighting for dignity, respect, and higher wages. $15 and a Union is the battle cry being answered by thousands of workers who desperately need a livable wage.

On April 15 this rising power will take to the streets in Hartford, Connecticut and in hundreds of cities across the U.S. as we mount the largest demonstrations to date. Join us for a discussion on how we can turn a demand on the bosses in to real gains for the lowest paid workers.
