Help us Fly the Socialist Feminist Flag

Proud_Socialist_Feminist.jpg

We're PROUD to be Socialist Feminists! We play a critical role - raising feminist concerns in socialist circles, and raising socialist concerns in feminist circles.

One way we're doing that is DSA's Socialist Feminism Commission is organizing our participation in the National Network of Abortion Funds Bowl-A-Thon fundraisers throughout the month of April. These bowl-a-thons raise money for poor women to access safe abortions.

We want our bowl-a-thon teams to have great swag so they can be visible as Socialist Feminists during these events! Will you help us raise $500 to buy as many "Proud Socialist Feminist" buttons as we can before the bowl a thons?

To thank you for your donation:

  • If you give $10 or more we will send you a Proud Socialist Feminist button!
  • If you give $50 or more we will send you 10!

What other socialist feminist projects is the Socialist Feminist commission working on? The DSA Socialist Feminist commission currently has working groups on reproductive justice, women and poverty, and a mentoring/training program for women within DSA.

Help us fly the socialist feminist flag. Donate today and receive swag that shows you are a #ProudSocialistFeminist!
