As International Workers’ Day approaches, learn more about the action that LCLAA and many IWS coalition groups are planning to protest injustice against immigrants, people of color, and all working people by visiting our Mayday page.

Thank you to everyone who made Pittsburgh International Women’s Strike a success!

One month has passed since the action, and we have so much to say to enumerate our gratitude for your help making the Pittsburgh International Women’s Strike a raving success. But first, let us start with two sincere words: Thank you.

On Wednesday, March 8th, International Women’s Day, hundreds of women and our allies joined the PGH International Women’s Strike #M8. We are proud of the speakers and organizers who are committed to the principles of our platform, who amplified a unified message that we will establish and maintain together in Pittsburgh.

Our power and passion coalesced in a truly memorable and powerful event that we hope fosters stronger ties to one another and helps us build on this momentum. We aspire to make this an annual event and continue to strengthen coalition in the upcoming months and years. We learned a lot from this process and are committed to providing more resources and structure to our framework with your help.

We are so appreciative of our sponsors and those who lent a hand without formal acknowledgment. Please stay connected with us on this page and inform us of your upcoming projects so that we can share them as well.

Thank you so much for your commitment, the time and energy you all gave to make this day possible.

In Solidarity,
The Pittsburgh International Women’s Strike Coalition
