Amherst College Reproductive Justice Alliance
The Reproductive Justice Alliance is an intersection social justice club on campus which began in the Fall of 2016. It includes members of all gender identities and expressions who have a passion for expanding and protecting reproductive rights. Some of the projects we have worked on in the past include a coat hanger necklace fundraiser to benefit Planned Parenthood, a Reproductive Justice 5K for the Prison Birth Project, and a Gala for Safe Passage. We have also brought speakers to campus and set up political action phone banks. To get involved or stay updated on our current projects, email Maggie Shea at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Association for Women in Science
The Amherst affiliate group of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) was started in the spring of 2015 with the goal of acting as an umbrella organization for student-led, women-in-STEM initiatives at the college. We aim to provide support for all students, staff, and faculty interested in promoting equality for women in STEM, regardless of gender or major. We provide Amherst AWIS members with an email newsletter, website, event calendar, and organizational support. Our ties to a national organization and to the Four College and UMass AWIS groups allow for scholarship and networking opportunities for our students, creating both a local and national network. Our current co-presidents are Linh Le '19 and Natalie Braun '19. Email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Biweekly meetings are restricted to the Executive Board, however we host numerous events throughout the year that we advertise on our ListServ and Facebook page.
Black Women's Group (BWG)
BWG is a subset of the Black Students' Union created by Black women who felt invisible on campus and in general BSU meetings. This is a closed space to Black women and non-binary folks who may identify as femme. Our mission is to provide community to Black women and femmes! BWG meets every other week on Tuesdays from 8-9pm in The Octagon. Email DeLyna Hadgu at email@example.com or Mariama-Alexis Camara at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Hello Girl! (Amherst Women in Computer Science) is part of the Computer Science Club. Hello Girl! organizes workshops and trips to conferences for women in Computer Science.
