Your Weekly Activist Events Roundup

The fight continues: after another round of political upheavals in Washington, and the subsequent shockwave that the rest of the country experienced, we’re setting our sights (once again) on action and activism. Each week, we’ll be bringing our NYC locals a list of some not-to-be-missed (let’s just say it: essential) events on our calendar, in the hopes that our virtual community will gather and organize in person, too. Peep the event info below, and sign up when you can—this movement requires all hands on deck.

Tuesday, March 07—Sunday March 12: New York Feminist Film WeekWhat: Join the co-founders of Woman With A Movie Camera, Joy Schaefer and Sofia Varino, for the inaugural New York Feminist Film Week, inspired by others that take place in London and Berlin.
