|Texas-wide Indigenous Women Activists Gathering|
|Sunday, 22 March 2009|
From July 31 – August 2, 2009 Alma de Mujer will host the first of three (3) annual state-wide activist gatherings. The Gathering will bring together up to 30 Indigenous women/women of color activists, activist scholars and organizational leaders whose work focuses on three sectors of our social justice movements: immigration, Native sovereignty and environmental justice. The purpose of this gathering is to foster inter-generational dialogue and cross-sectional critical analysis across different branches of our social justice movements in an effort to strengthen our collective capacities, our social and political networks, and to promote resource sharing.
The program will include a dialogue developed to stimulate intersectional analysis across three critical issues in our social justice movements. It is our hope that this dialogue will serve to uncover gaps and overlaps in our work, as well as to identify untapped resources, and to strengthen the movement overall. Alma de Mujer serves as a critical location, not only for the historic role it has played in Indigenous women’s leadership, but also because the land is healing land, and offers a quiet and safe space for women to rest from the on-going toll our work takes on our bodies. To this end, Alma de Mujer will also be providing holistic health services (acupuncture, yoga, massage & reiki) for all attendees. The cost is $40-$60 sliding scale and covers the cost of food & lodging for the weekend.
