The Sanctuary Movement and Women's Rights: Sister Struggles 29.4.2017 Truthout.com
The sharing of strategies is a first step in recognizing that in fact, these two movements -- both reinvigorated by Trump's election -- should be explicitly joined: The push for women's rights must also be a push for sanctuary. These two political struggles are inextricable. If we do not think about them together, we risk not adequately addressing important forms of discrimination and exclusion. People gather in Washington Square Park in Manhattan on International Women's Day, March 8, 2017. (Todd Heisler / The New York Times) On May 1, International Workers Day, immigrants will join many from the labor movement by striking, marking a "day without immigrants." While this is a strategy that has been used every May Day since 2006, this year, it is also part of a larger struggle for sanctuary, countering Trump's explicitly racist and restrictive immigration policies. On March 8, women borrowed this tactic to mark International Women's Day. They called for "a day without women" to protest Trump's sexist and ...

One of these new ...
