PinkWave is an intersectional feminist organization based in Stamford, CT that celebrates women, transwomen, and non-binary people in our community through activities that fight for equity in healthcare, finance, education, the workplace and more. We support each other as we step forward into roles of leadership. We aim to lift each other up to reach our greatest potential. Together, WE RISE!
On January 18, 2020, the #PinkWave2020 Rally for Women’s Rights swept the City of Stamford, Connecticut. Held in solidarity with Women’s Marches across the state, and the Women’s Marches in NY and DC that same day, 200 community members joined us in below-freezing temps to stand up, speak out, and commit to taking action.
Pink Wave works to stand together against misogyny, patriarchal servitude, and fear of femme through community programs and legislative activities that support an inclusive feminist vision & intersectional racial, gender & reproductive justice.
PinkWave envisions a world where women of all races/backgrounds/religions, transwomen, and non-binary people are treated as equals in every facet of society to our traditionally-male counterparts.
