International Women's Gathering

$1,408 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 31 people in 25 days

The Zapatista women will host the First International Gathering of Politics, Art, Sport, and Culture for Women in Struggle in Chiapas, Mexico from March 7-11, 2018. A delegation of women from all walks of life, racial, social-economic, and cultural backgrounds strongly feel that we could learn much from our Zapatista sisters. Their indigenous perspectives and willingness to decolonize and reshape the political landscape into something that works for all people speaks to us as we look at the challenges we face in the US and Canada.

As intersectional feminists who are members of various grassroots radical and revolutionary organizations, we too are fighting to destroy patriarchal systems and structures. We believe that what we learn from the experiences of the Zapatista women can be applied to our every day struggles in the current movements that the women in our delegation are participating in.

We women attending the gathering would like to bring our Zapatista Relatives offerings from our homes. If you have any words of solidarity you would like us to share with our Zapatista sisters, please let us know. Upon our return, we hope to have community meetings and discussions to share what we have learned and our Zapatista Relatives' responses to your messages as a way to provide a connection to them through us.

We are seeking to raise funds to have 12 women attend this powerful event. Any help you can provide is appreciated. When women are liberated, everyone is free.
