Invite everyone, reach out to activists, students, artists, social justice groups, and more. Wear masks. Social distance. All events outside (or online).
Over these last weeks, a coalition of groups and activists have spent much time talking with our sisters on the ground in Afghanistan. In the spirit of our work and always taking the lead from women on the ground, we asked them what they most needed and they told us:
They need our solidarity.
They need our support.
They need our eyes on Afghanistan.
They need us not to recognize the Taliban.
They need massive humanitarian aid.
They need our sisterhood.
They need us to Roar, Rage, and Rise.
In consultation with many of them, we created a list of demands and a call to action. People and groups from all over the world have signed on in support with more signing on and planning actions on September 25.
