We are Women of Color in the Global Women’s Strike and we put forward the needs and concerns, and make visible the contributions of women of color. From Haiti to Guyana, Peru, Venezuela, India, China, England, LA, SF, and Philadelphia we come together to support each others’ local demands. We are homeless people, people threatened with homelessness, single mothers, lesbian women, including African, Asian and Latina descent. We accept all support but we are independent of political parties and NGOs.
