This winter we are working together while staying safe at home – sharing social events, service work, and fitness activities. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the team, and to get involved!
Help make a difference in election participation. Share these graphics, and contact friends and family – share the PA registration deadline (October 19) and the opportunities to register, request and return a ballot in-person at Philadelphia’s early voting centers.
Proceeds from AMP’s 2020 team store sales benefitted the Bread & Roses Solidarity Fund for COVID-19 Organizing and we want to encourage others to learn about and invest with the organization!
Bread & Roses believes “that the people in the best position to create real change are those who are most affected by injustice and inequality,” and their COVID fund was created with the intent that “only through organizing can we work effectively for a just and humane response from governments, corporations, and other institutions.”
Along with the rest of the nation, we grieve the unjust police killing of George Floyd, and we are determined to resist the structural racism that plagues our communities. We believe that the corruption and racism embedded in our policing, criminal justice, and economic systems are the root cause of these issues. We are especially saddened by the violence and oppression occurring in our own community, where the police have escalated conflict with peaceful demonstrators.
AMP recognizes the privilege inherent with our majority white team, and we seek to better understand how we can best support our community, as well as how we can change and grow to be better allies in the future.
The work of Black Lives Matter Philadelphia is especially vital – organizing protests and providing a communication hub for the community. Alongside Philly Womxn Club, AMP matched community members’ donations to Black Lives Matter Philadelphia; team and community contributions totaled $10,530.
