    The January 22, 1973, Roe Vs. Wade Supreme Court decision declared that the constitutional right to privacy extends to a woman’s right to make her own personal medical decisions — including the decision to have an abortion without interference from politicians.
    44 years later, Americans are still standing by this decision — with 7 in 10 Americans agreeing Roe vs. Wade should remain the law of the land.

  • Who We Are

     

    Women for Justice began as Women for Bernie Sanders 2016.

    We're an all-volunteer, grassroots group committed to work so that

    women of all ages, races, classes and backgrounds

    are included in the dialogue and the action.

     

    We believe that profound social and political change can only happen when women take a central role in creating the change.

     

    We want women to take a strong role in the political revolution,

    from prioritizing and articulating women-centric issues that are

    often ignored by the political elite,

    to defining successful outcomes.

     

    This is OUR Revolution.

     

    Why Justice?

    "Finally, let's understand that when we stand together, we will always win.

    When men and women stand together for justice, we win.

    When black, white and Hispanic people stand together for justice, we win." -- Bernie Sanders

     

    Women For Justice goes beyond Revolution.

    It's not just a call to action. It's a demand for results.

    It's not just in the streets and at the ballot boxes, it's in the laws our representatives create and the truth we expect to be reflected in our media.

    It's not just on the picket lines, it's in the living wages and pay equity we mandate.

    It's not just in the petitions and protest marches, it's in the clean energy jobs created by fair taxing of the financial elite.

     

    What is the goal of this, OUR revolution? Justice.

    Justice in our jails, our workplaces, our schools, our healthcare. Justice for our planet, our sisters and brothers beyond our borders.

     

  • Our Plan

    We aim to get women informed and engaged in social and political change

    to realize real results: JUSTICE.

    Informing & Influencing

    Using our social media channels and graphic arts team, we provide thought-provoking coverage of political and social stories that impact women.

     

    We focus on issues related to justice - reproductive justice, pay equity, criminal justice, environment, civil rights and human rights.

     

    We offer content in English and Spanish.

    Promoting Progressive Candidates

    & Policy

    We encourage women to run as candidates at all levels of governmental offices, municipal to national, and offer them campaign and reelection support via social media and graphic arts resources.

     

    We push candidates, both men and women, to articulate stronger pro-women policy and platforms.

     

    After decades of work by generations of women and allies, ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment should be top priority for ALL legislators. 

    Partnering with ALL Who Work for Justice

    We will partner with other progressive grassroots groups to achieve 'big wins' for women.

     

    We will maintain close partnerships with organizations like Our Revolution and Brand New Congress, helping them to achieve their goals and giving them regular input on outreach and policy platforms that benefit all women.

    And So Much More...

    We hope to build an organization that lives up to our name,

    Women For Justice.

     

    Choosing this name and mission challenges us to dig deeper, take stronger stands and go beyond our comfort zones.

    We will always be 'under construction'.

  • Our Team

    We strive to be diverse and inclusive.

    If you're interested in joining us, please contact us.

    Note: Women for Justice has no paid staff. We are all volunteers and peers.

    Millicent Bolden

    Alabama

    I am a retired professor of Spanish American Literature, Latin American Studies and Humanities.

    I remain committed to Bernie Sanders' platform of Social, Racial, Economic and Environmental Justice.

    Cathy Borges

    Pennsylvania

    I'm a single mom of two grown children. My daughter has an MBA and my son is a Wounded Warrior. Although I come from a strong, proud military family, I was loudly against the Iraq war.

    Then I saw Bernie and he put into words what was wrong with the Iraq war and he has been on my radar ever since. There is much to learn from this great man and I happily volunteered to

    help spread that word.

    Jenni Chang

    California

    Copywriter, photo producer.

    I believe in the willpower of women.

    We are nurturers, providers, hell-raisers, mediators.

    We can be as
    visible and solid as mountains,

    as fluid and sweeping as the
    undercurrents of the sea.

    Currently, I am organizing to help pass the Healthy California Act aka SB 562

    to guarantee healthcare for everyone
    in this great state.

    Health Care is a Human Right!​

    Carissa Alexandra Daniels

    Washington

    I spent 7 years in broadcast journalism--horrified to see what has happened in my old line of work.

    My own experience with domestic violence led to pioneering work in online domestic violence advocacy and from that into my current love as co-director of Safe and Silent No More.

    I fell in love with Bernie’s brand of social democracy early in the process of researching presidential candidates and knew I wanted to be a part of supporting him.

    I’m a senior at Seattle University (majoring in Communications and film), and a single parent.

    Bernie and the people I work with give me hope even at the darkest of times.

    Georgia

    De La Garza

    Illinois

    After years of exposing corruption in our government and organizing communities to stand against the fossil fuel industries, I knew the only step left to take is to be a part of a revolution.

    My Mantra:

    Action=

    Momentum=

    Movement=

    Change

    Nicole DiStefano

    Florida

    I volunteer because I believe we can and should do much better

    for each other.

    Bernie's message gives me hope for

    our future.

    Also, working in health care, I see first hand how our system works and has made me even more geared towards fighting for universal healthcare for all.

    Pat Downs

    California

    I'm a retired librarian from a working class background. Bernie says his first filter for issues is economic justice. Mine, too.

    Wage parity, single-payer

    healthcare and affordable

    pre-K - college education will

    make major strides toward economic justice, the foundation for real democracy

    --the kind that includes us all.

    Misty

    Esparza Wehler

    Texas

     

    I will never forget the day I heard that Bernie Sanders was going to announce his candidacy for president in April 2015. It was one of the happiest surprises of my adult life!

    Working with Texas Women for Bernie was a wonderful experience, and I am proud to continue working with Women for Justice.

    Introducing our message to mainstream thinking was the hard part of this journey.

    I truly feel we are just getting started.

     

    Melissa García

    California

    I'm an aspiring social worker trying to earn her MSW, all while serving my constituents as an elected assembly district delegate.

    My undergraduate degree is in political science, and I've been involved in political activism since I was a teenager. I am an ardent Bernie supporter and identify as a progressive.

    I'm here to advocate and empower!

    Laura Harrington

    Massachusetts

    After 35 years as an IT professional at HP, I retired to volunteering as a Webmaster & Social Media Coordinator for several non profits, like LCI (Lions Clubs) and HFH (Habitat for Humanity).

    I was drawn to this work by the emergence of Bernie Sanders who I believed was a once in a lifetime candidate.

    By continuing this work I hope to be a part of furthering the causes of

    Equal Rights and Human Rights.

    Judy

    Hartman-Tipple

    California

    Involved with the labor movement in the 70s as an airline employee, and watched, from a front row seat as regulations were dismantled & workers fired. Politics is not a spectator sport. All citizens should participate, at the very least by educating themselves on the issues, and voting. Eight years an elected official on my local school board (2 years as President, 2 years as VP) and one year on our town’s planning commission taught me many lessons; some good, and some not.

    Proudly a fifth-generation San Franciscan, boomer, retiree and fiberista (weaving, knitting and spinning),

    I volunteer because I am concerned about the direction this country is going and that our fourth estate has abdicated journalistic duties such that we must be the media.

    Amy

    Hernández Peraza

    Puerto Rico

    I joined this community because I felt compelled by Bernie´s message about justice.

    I believe that we can pursue a fair, inclusive and peaceful society.

    Suzanne Horrocks

    Texas

    When I needed the social safety net for my young daughter, I vowed to pay it forward someday.

    Being an activist is my way of doing that.

    Denise Kelly

    Texas

    I have always believed it true that knowledge is power and that if you organize enough knowledgeable people, you will become unstoppable.

    I love being a part of Women for Justice because we are doing just that. We’re working to create a better world, not just for our children and grandchildren, but also for our sisters and brothers that we have never met.

    I’m very proud to part of this organization.

    Lisa Levsen

    Oregon

    I am a Women for Justice because I believe that every citizen deserves the right to healthcare, housing, food, clean water and a non-polluted planet to live on. Beyond these basic human rights are the freedoms of religion, sexual orientation and gender identification.

    I will fight to make these rights forever available to every American.

    Polly Malcolm

    Arizona

    There are so many reasons why I volunteer. I can’t sit back and ignore the injustice and suffering around us all. A few years ago, I watched my eldest brother die of cancer while begging for the little care he received. This was after the ACA. I was horrified that this was happening in a country I’m so proud to belong to.

    I have to fight for a better world for my children and for everyone!

    Monica Marie

    Pennsylvania

    In today's political climate, standing by and opting out are privileges. Democracy only works with active participation - so I volunteer to help raise those grassroots efforts and make our voices heard.

    I want to work towards justice.

    I'm happy to be part of a group that helps people learn more about the issues.

    Amy Markwood

    Pennsylvania

    During the campaign, I worked on

    PA Women for Bernie on both

    Facebook and Twitter.

    I attended the DNC Convention and witnessed the madness.

    I passionately stand up for what I believe is right, and I will always #FeelTheBern!

    Annabelle Márquez

    New Mexico

    I regard myself as a problem-solver. Through my social media work, I would like to inspire others to take individual and collective action for a more just society and a better world.

    Joyce McDonald

    Maryland

    I am here to help, to work together towards a better future for our planet and our children. I want healthcare, higher education for all, clean energy and freedom from discrimination.

    I am a Woman for Justice.

    Ben Moss

    Maine

    I contribute visuals for social media posts around W4J topics. W4J is an important part of the continuing and the much needed 'Bernie' revolution.

    To me nothing is more important than to connect with like minded people and help guide them to information and resources around social, political and environmental justice.

    Maranda Mulroney

    Texas

    My life's passion is to be an advocate for people. As an RN, I have built my practice on a foundation of advocacy, but I don't want to stop there.

    I have had experience within the healthcare system as a Case Manager in the acute care setting and currently with Hospice. I also have experience as an advocate for my special needs son within the public school system.

    I am excited to extend my outreach with Women For Justice. I was inspired by Senator Bernie Sanders to get involved during the primaries, and worked with Women For Bernie Sanders as well as a local group during the primaries.

    I am excited to be working with this dynamic group again!

    Carla

    Poindexter-White

    Maine

    I am a dancer, writer, observer, spouse, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, expatriated New Yorker turned Maine-iac, and warrior for a saner world.

    I have my own business providing graphic design and other communications services for writers, artists, nonprofits and small businesses - especially those working for health, education, social justice and the arts.

    Teresa Puente

    California

    Writer, editor, educator. I'm a Chicana born and raised in Chicago, now living on the Left Coast.

    Now more than ever we must use our voices to hold government officials accountable to speak out against all forms of injustice and racism.​

    Rosemari Roast

    Connecticut

    I am a Woman for Justice because Nona Gaia and All her children need the Medicine of Women and the Medicine of Justice.

    Now more than ever.

    Peace

    Lissa Squiers

    Texas

    I love volunteering with Women for Justice because it allows me to share Civic Engagement information with people. We know that civic engagement leads to volunteering, community organizing and voting. Without it, we have no say in our lives.

    With it, we can do anything!

    Helena Sorus

    California

    I was raised in the North Bay of California and have recently returned after many years of travel.

    I am a mother of two young children, one with special needs.

    In addition to advocating for equality,

    I am passionate about the healing power of art and will be returning to school to be an art therapist.

    Krista Stewart

    Tennessee

    I volunteer because I care about the environment and ensuring everyone has healthcare.

    My outside interests are animals, traveling, and knitting.

    Brandy Stowe

    New Jersey

    I am an activist to give a voice for those who can't speak for themselves.

    I am an activist to fight against the injustices of the world.

    This is the rent I pay to live on this planet.

    CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S. funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect our resources into health care, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities. The name CODEPINK satirized the Bush Administration's color-coded, fear-mongering "security" alert system that has since been phased out. CODEPINK is a lively call for the people of the world to "wage peace."
