Talk: Deeds Not Words

Wendy Davis, former Texas State Senator, shares her new organization and why women need to get involved in major issues like economic inequality and ending campus sexual assault. Borrowing their name from our suffragette foremothers' motto, Deeds Not Words is the feminist platform for the 21st century. The organization provides the tools everyday activists need to make change in their communities, from sample letters for legislators to toolkits for taking action. Most importantly, they are a community where change makers can learn about and share advice on how to combat income inequality and sexual assault, or improve reproductive rights and family leave.
