International Women’s Day was marked in Providence, R.I., by a “Women of All Colors Assembly,” a wonderful gathering of 100 amazing women representing dozens of organizations. Convened by mostly African-American, working class women, it brought together people with a super-high level of energy and enthusiasm for women’s unity and organization. The assembly was also a historic occasion in Rhode Island’s “peoples history” — the official founding of the RI Women’s Assembly. RIWA will seek to have a significant and lasting impact in the years to come as a permanent voice for working class women, women of color, and all progressive women in the state.
