Issue 47: My baby shot me down
Riddle me this. Ever wonder why, when the US continues to have the highest levels of gun violence among fellow wealthy nations, the elected officials in DC can’t seem to focus on basic, common sense gun safety reform? You're not alone. This week we’re focusing our attention on the NRA and breaking down why gun policy isn’t just a public safety concern—it's a women’s issue. (Stay tuned for Part 2 on the NRA and race.)
PS: Tickets to tomorrow's Broad Social have SOLD OUT! But you can still donate here to help The Broad Room raise money to hire an executive director and keep our trainings free for all women.
Issue 46: Where my broads at?
Several weeks ago, we mourned the one-year anniversary of Trump’s election and the heinous actions of his garbage administration. But this week—while we're reminded of the outrage that sent us into the streets, determined to fight back—we’re reflecting on the past year in a new light. It was the year we launched The Broad Room. The year we started channeling our outrage into this Broad Memo. The year we began meeting up and learning from brilliant, feminist activist trainers. And the year we built a community of young women committed to our shared goals of a less horrendous, more equal tomorrow.
We’re The Broad Room―and we’re building an all-female army of progressive activists. Join us.
Issue 45: ABC, 123, baby, you and me girl
This week, we’re focusing on Trump and his education secretary Betsy DeVos's “school choice” agenda. “School choice” is code for taking resources and students away from traditional public schools and driving them toward private, parochial, and charter schools—and it threatens the future of public education as we know it. We’re talking about the problems with “school choice,” how the GOP tax bill will damage public education funding, and how you can still support children in your community.
PS: We’re throwing a party on January 18 in Brooklyn and Cynthia Nixon is speaking, so make sure to RSVP ASAP. (You don’t have to be woman-identifying to come to this—everyone's invited!)
