Bluestockings, a cherished feminist bookstore located in NYC’s Lower East Side, has found a new home amid threats of closing for good. As with many small businesses, the pandemic has forced many independent bookstores to sadly close their doors for good. But luckily, Bluestockings, the volunteer-run bookshop and café is here to stay, thanks to a new location for them to call home.

After tirelessly working to raise funds, the collectively-owned bookstore is set to move from its location of twenty years on Allen Street to their new home at 116 Suffolk Street. However, the move will not be cheap and Bluestockings still needs our help. You can support Bluestockings here and be sure to check out their riveting virtual programming here
