November 2016 - Upon learning the results of the 2016 Presidential election, three women came together to form New Feminists for Justice (NFFJ). Our goal is to work for peace through justice utilizing grassroots feminist efforts.
NFFJ is determined to resist the agenda of the incoming administration as long as it continues to be built on misogyny, promotes economic inequality and an atmosphere of cultural bigotry, and has an agenda that promotes a disregard of the environment, as well as, the Constitution of the United States.
Our first course of action: planning, organizing and hosting the Syracuse in Solidarity event ~ a peaceful gathering in support of the Women's March on Washington, DC, January 21, 2017 in Syracuse, NY.
What We've Achieved
- Spearheaded Syracuse in Solidarity (in conjunction with Woman's March on Washington on January 21, 2016 with over 2,000 in attendance.
- Daily calls to Congressman John Katko's office asking for a Town Hall Meeting
- Daily calls to Senate and Congress members to stop Bannon from being appointed to Homeland Security Committee
