1@1 2020: EACH 1, REACH 1
2020 is a crucial election year in America. Constitutionally protected equal rights have never been more important. Battles are raging everywhere against sexism, racism, environmental degradation, homophobia, ableism, faith and culture persecution, gun violence, a woman’s right to choose, a warped prison system, and other results of the gross power imbalance created by America’s patriarchal systems that continue to favor straight white Christian men. This must end now.
We can correct our country’s disastrous direction by voting for change, but we need more votes – including from those who are too discouraged, too burdened, or too suppressed to get to the polls. Each of us must multiply our impact by making it possible for at least one other person to vote.
That’s the goal of Each 1, Reach 1. Click here to act now.
SINCE THE FIRST WOMEN’S MARCH, 1@1 HAS UNITED OVER A MILLION PEOPLE IN A MINUTE FOR WOMEN’S EQUALITY
1@1 began after the shocking result of the 2016 election and the subsequent announcement of the Women’s March. It became clear that many women who needed the energy of the march would be unable to attend, so we devised a way to bring the march to everyone. On Jan. 21, 2017 at 1 PM EST, 500,000+ people around the world united for the 1@1 MINUTE OF SILENCE FOR WOMEN’S EQUALITY (renamed the 1@1 MINUTE FOR WOMEN’S EQUALITY in 2019), after Gloria Steinem invited all to join from the stage of the Women’s March in DC. Another half a million people united on Jan. 20, 2018 for the second 1@1 Minute, and again a third time on Jan. 19, 2019.
In addition to these global events, 1@1 released weekly 1-minute videos featuring inspiring changemakers in the advancement of women’s equality.
WEEKLY 1-MINUTE VIDEOS FROM INSPIRING CHANGEMAKERS
The 1@1 women’s equality video project was a much-needed platform to keep the energy of the 1@1 Minute going. We believe the issues championed by women are comprehensive in scope and vital to all Americans. We delivered 1-minute videos each week from compelling activists, thought leaders, and powerhouse women. We also created community events that connected and motivated. Designed to stave off burnout and complacency, 1@1 continues to be a bite-size chunk of revolution for the overwhelmed.
