AF3IRM NYC’S 8TH ANNUAL SUMMER SCHOOL OF WOMEN’S ACTIVISM (SSOWA)
July 20 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until August 10, 2019
A boot camp for feminist ideas, concepts and visions.
The Summer School of Women’s Activism (SSoWA) runs for four hours over four Saturdays: July 20, 27 and August 3, 10 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Each session starts with lunch, continues into a discussion of theory and history, and finishes with skills training. SSoWA is produced and presented annually by AF3IRM. Our school is a space for participants to learn, discuss, and grow together, personally and collectively, politically and intellectually.
This year AF3IRM NYC chose the theme “Decolonize Feminism! Land & Women Not for Conquest” in resistance to corporate-designed “feminism” that homogenizes the collective and generational trauma of transnational women of color, tethers our ‘liberation’ to capitalist notions of productivity and divorces us from our pre-colonial relationship to the land. From understanding women as the first form of private property, the indigenous roots and routes of feminist principles, to challenging the individualized and self-indulgence of self-care by healing through struggle, AF3IRM NYC is committed to understanding the burdens of women before us, how they sought to better their situations, and re-charting new visions for women of color and remembering our connection to the land.
Join us in this continuous forging of an unbreakable sisterhood through all our generations.
