 Handmaid Coalition™ is a political action group created in the wake of increasingly volatile political trends targeting women, the working class, and minority groups across the country. Through state and local chapters, we monitor pertinent legislation, coordinate with other grassroots groups and established powerhouses, and move to address the situation appropriately, either through support, lobbying, or peaceful protest. Chapters work across state lines to coordinate and organize solidarity events in areas most in need. We do this to work toward an America in which everyone, regardless of sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity, has an equal voice in the political discussions and decisions at local, state, and federal levels. We strive to create a place online where members can find support and an opportunity to share their experiences. 

More information about our beginning, our team, and our state chapters can be found below. To read our Mission, Vision, and Goals statements, continue scrolling.

Mission

Handmaid Coalition was created for a singular reason: to combat misogyny and oppression in legislation and government policy targeting the disenfranchised groups society would seek to “other.” Through organizing, coordination with existing groups, lobbying, and protesting, we seek to expose, confront, and address oppressive and repressive politicians, policies, and actions.

Vision

Handmaid Coalition works at everything it does with one goal in mind: To usher in, for the first time in American history, a political era in which all groups are equally and fairly represented in the political sphere. Whether man or woman, gay or straight, black or white, cisgender or trans, etc., all should have an equal voice in America.

Goals

The teams that make up  Handmaid Coalition are autonomous and focus on local and state issues. The problems in Massachusetts and Connecticut are different than those faced by women in Texas and Mississippi. However, the overall goal, like the imagery, is shared: protecting our rights.

Our BODIES, our LIVES, our RIGHTS, our FUTURE.
