What did they teach you at school about Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Sojourner Truth and Julia Ward Howe?

Dear Kevin,

Solidarity, unity, working together… On March 31, 1888, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Julia Ward Howe, and Sojourner Truth were among the founders of a women’s movement organization that still perseveres. Today we remember their solidarity and honor their relentless work for justice and equality as we stand for women’s rights.

Let’s continue to draw inspiration from the courage of these incredible women and from the Women’s March on Washington – the largest day of demonstrations in United States history – as we recommit to the fight ahead! We need to double down on organizing as President Trump’s policies and proposed budget cuts threaten to derail much of ILRF and the labor community’s gains.

Now we need you to join us!

In a few weeks, we will honor some very courageous women who have taken great risks to organize a union in the historically abusive melon sector of Honduras. Their resolve to take a stand together represents a true Labor Rights Defender of these times.                                                          

Help ensure ILRF will keep fighting for better protections for women workers! Please donate today!

Thank you so much for your support over the past year. It is because of you that ILRF is an uncompromising advocate for workers’ rights. With your help, ILRF is poised to defend the rights of women workers around the world whether they are from Honduras, Uzbekistan, China or the U.S. Please make your gift today to ensure ILRF is ready to fight the long battles ahead.

In solidarity,

Judy Gearhart
Executive Director
