Debrief Discussion: Luzzo’s Restaurant – 211 1st Ave. / 10:00-11:00pm

The Invisible War is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Invisible War exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation.

March 2012: Third Wave Joins Women’s History Month Campaign

March 2012

Amidst intensified attacks on women’s rights this election year, Third Wave Foundation is partnering with 25 women’s funds from across the country to increase attention to the issues affecting women and girls nationwide.

With politicians openly supporting a reversal of women’s rights – from attempts to deny them access to contraception to deeming them unfit for military combat – the “Calling All Women: Send a Message of Strength” campaign is raising awareness of the inequality that exists and highlighting the change that local and national women’s funds are advancing in communities around the country.

Throughout the month of March – Women’s History Month – the campaign is using mobile-giving technology and a multi-pronged social mobilization approach to spread the message that women must unite for change. By texting WOMEN to 50555, supporters can donate $10, which will be distributed to participating women’s funds.

The campaign features a video demonstrating the impact of inequality on women’s lives. With women still earning only 77 percent of men’s pay – and disparities in access to health care and education pervasive, women continue to lag behind men in many social indicators.

Women’s funds across the U.S. work every day to make positive change by supporting women on a broad range of issues, including living-wage jobs and workplace supports for mothers. By building leadership, skills and connections, these funds also help combat the underrepresentation of women in public office and higher-earning career fields, like science and technology.

As a feminist, activist foundation that works nationally to support young women and transgender youth ages 15 to 30, Third Wave Foundation is committed to growing the women’s movement by supporting new and innovative approaches to pursuing gender, racial, social and economic justice.

Nov 13-14, 2010 / State RootsCamps

Saturday, November 13th – Sunday, November 14th, 2010

This year marks the 5th annual RootsCamp “unconference” where organizers set the agenda, share lessons learned and drive the conversation about best practices in organizing. RootsCamps aren’t top-down, panel-led conferences. They are “unconferences” led by the people who attend — like you — who want to talk about organizing and running campaigns in a whole new way. It’s a place to share the stories, successes and lessons of our organizing from a truly local perspective. You’ll hear directly from the field staff, data managers, and new media gurus, as well as the campaign managers and consultants, so that we can all replicate our successes and avoid repeating the failures in our next campaigns.

Click here to see where the RootsCamp is being held in your state!
