Three very prominent women activists: Cecile Richards, the former head of Planned Parenthood; Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter; and Ai-jen Poo, executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance have formed Super Majority. The group, which describes itself as multiracial and intergenerational, has a goal of training and mobilizing 2 million women over the next year to become organizers and political leaders in their communities, reports TIME.
For me, a small ray of hope appeared with Monday's rising sun. So many of us have had our spirits ripped to shreds with the divisiveness perpetuated against white women and Jewish women by the founders of the Women's March.
At this moment of Trump, I just do not understand the strategy when the stakes are so high. And yes, the WM founders are now interacting with the Jewish community, which is a good thing. .
SuperMajority will speak with a unified voice and not one of recriminations, and I expect that we will all want to rally around their leadership. Thank you for stepping up Cecile Richards, Alicia Garza and Ai-jen Poo.
Many of us are inactive members of Pantsuit Nation — I was #187 member of a group now at 3.5 million—and they are also working on the project. The anti-white women sentiment also swept through PantSuit Nation — primarily a group of Hillary supporters — and this fact is addressed in this BuzzFeed article on Super Majority.
