Badass Activists Action Network of the Pioneer Valley hosts SOLIDARITY SUNDAYS as an inclusive, action-oriented, virtual + real life activist gathering. Our focus is weekly gatherings dedicated to empowering feminist, progressive political action. We have political discussions, write letters, make phone calls, send emails, & amplify the actions of existing organizations fighting for justice, equity, reproductive justice, & peace. Invite your badass activist friends for the next Solidarity Sunday gathering. We will gather every Sunday from 10:30 to 12:30 at Click co working space on Market street in Northampton- http://clickworkspace.org/
Every Sunday, we gather at Click to take ACTION on immediate issues that matter. We make phone calls & write letters to elected representatives; bring in guest speakers; organize, educate, & empower on nationwide & hyper-local issues. Attendees get contact info & sample scripts to make the process of contacting elected officials easy. We will also provide postcards and stamps, with the opportunity to donate to cover the costs of these supplies.
Solidarity Sundays are BYOB– bring your own brunch! If you want to bring a food or drink intended to share, please do so- we would be very grateful! We have a few feelers out to find local food and drink donations, so if you know or are connected to a business that may be interested in donating, please let Chelsea know at firstname.lastname@example.org
We recommend joining the national Solidarity Sundays FB group for daily actions and the larger national conversation. https://www.facebook.com/groups/SolidaritySundays/) As always, please bring: Your rage and solidarity! Cell phone and/or computer (Optional) Drinks or snacks to share (optional) A teenager to help with childcare (optional) We provide: Pens stamps postcards info ***Kids welcome; we have not arranged for official childcare but hope to for Sundays in the future. For now, we will be sharing 1 giant space with kiddos & adults. Please bring quiet toys or books! CORE BELIEFS In our virtual & real-world spaces, we work toward racial/ gender/ social/ environmental/ reproductive/ economic justice. We believe that the following are real, urgent, and not up for debate: Racism & White Supremacy; White Privilege; Misogyny; Homophobia/Transphobia; Ableism; Islamophobia. We commit to resisting all of these. MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The goal is for the weekly meetings to be responsive to immediate needs/crises, but we also want to plan ahead. The national organizers have set up general themes for the next 6 months, along w/ suggestions for extra things chapters can do, but there is room for speakers, actions, and all kinds of other stuff.
