The Story

Introduction

The Pittsburgh International Women's Strike 2018 Coalition is honoring International Women's Day on March 8 and highlighting the on-going fight for paid sick leave in Pittsburgh through, beginning with an education panel discussion on March 7 and culminating in a march and rally in Downtown Pittsburgh on March 8

How YOU Can Help

While members of the IWS 2018 Coalition have donated their time and funds to this year's actions, we are still in need of funds to put toward various expenses, including (but not limited to):

  • Permits and rental fees for the education event, march and rally
  • Honorariums for speakers at the education event and rally
  • Accessibility accomodations, including ASL interpreters at both events
  • Food, bottled water and other provisions for both events
  • Printing costs for signage to be used at the march and rally on March 8

All donations go directly to the work of the Pittsburgh IWS Coalition. 


Background

On March 8, join millions of women worldwide to strike and protest against sexism and gender violence! This year, the PGH International Women's Strike #M8 Coalition will work alongside the Women's Law Project to highlight the urgent need for paid sick leave in Pittsburgh, especially among women who work low-wage jobs, women of color, queer and trans women, parents, caregivers, disabled people, and victims of domestic and sexual abuse. The Pittsburgh Paid Sick Days Act is going before the PA Supreme Court for review.

WE DEMAND:
• Paid sick days for all working people in Pittsburgh!
• An end to gender violence & discrimination, especially towards working women, trans women, and women of color!
• Reproductive & healthcare justice, labor rights, full social provisioning, and environmental justice for all!
• An end to mass incarceration, police brutality, ICE raids, and deportations!
• An end to international corporate greed and imperialist wars!
