Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? Womn Act.
Previously known as the Minnesota Women’s Consortium, Womn Act is a St. Paul-based non profit bringing together coordinated networks of individuals, organizations, and corporations that are advancing gender equity and social justice through advocacy and collaboration. As the only statewide coalition bringing together a vast and gloriously diverse group of individuals, organizations, and businesses working for gender equity, Womn Act serves to harnesses the collective power of womxn working together to create structural change.
This is the kind of long-arc, institutional work that takes time and, like most good, hard, long games isn't particularly glamorous or even immediately satisfying in the way of a before-and-after reveal. BUT the long-term advocacy and systems change-slog necessary to effectively combat centuries of injustice and inequity is the *thing* that makes change stick. Womxn's work, indeed.
If you don't need anything from us, please consider directly supporting Womn Act here.
If you DO find yourself in need of anything from us, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
Thanks to Elle for the nomination.
