As 2014 winds down, capital continues its offensive against reproductive labor conditions, women and trans power, social programs, and overall quality of life for working class people in New York and beyond. Where are people pushing back? And how can we forge meaningful connections capable of linking these struggles without glossing over their particularities? Florence Johnston Collective is an autonomous and unfunded group by and for working class people, dedicated to advancing struggle and generating analysis around issues of social reproduction. Over the past year we have met countless inspiring people who share our desire for radical change in social reproduction. In our pickets, flyering, public meetings, movie screenings, reading groups, and door to door campaigns, we have met folks of every stripe who share a common desire for a society based on human need, and capable of human care. As we plan our next steps, we want to hear from you. If you share our vision, want to discuss the future, or just want to hang out and see what we're all about, join us for a dinner event to welcome the Fall and plan for the spring ahead. Bring your friends, co-workers, family, children, lovers, and let's put our heads together toward a meaningful way forward. Childcare available, cats ok purrrr" ______________________________________ 2.
