Women, particularly women of color, have always borne the brunt of poverty, racism, militarism, and ecological destruction. At the same time, women have always contributed critical leadership to social justice movements, although their organizing is not always recognized. The Troy, NY launch of the Poor People’s Campaign will highlight how women are affected by these systems of injustice and oppression–and how they are fighting back. The evening will feature a lively panel discussion, music, refreshments, and how you can get involved in the Poor People’s Campaign.
