Indigenous and Women of Color Rise
ABOUT THE EVENT

As our world burns, injustice festers around the globe. Patriarchy, racism, and capitalism are bringing us to ruin. In the face of this brutality, we need to elevate voices from the grassroots. And not just any voices. We need radical voices that take no prisoners, that speak the truth, that rip down the fantasies of the powerful and inspire us to fight like our lives depend on it.

On March 8th, 2019 (International Women's Day), an event will be held featuring two of these powerful voices: Dominique Christina, the author of four books and the only person to EVER become a two-time world champion in slam poetry, and Cherry Smiley, warrior hero, feminist activist, scholar, and artist from the Nlaka'pamux (Thompson) and Dine (Navajo) nations.

The evening program will inform, educate, empower, inspire, and strengthen our spirit for the injustices we face: male violence, objectification, sexual exploitation, and racialization.

The event will take place at the world-famous Seattle Central Library in downtown Seattle, Washington, and is being organized by Asian Women for Equality and Fertile Ground Institute for Social and Environmental Justice.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS

Asian Women for Equality is a grassroots feminist  group. We work as a progressive force to change societal attitudes towards women, especially women of Asian descent; to advance equality  for Asian women; and to create opportunities for Asian women to have  meaningful participation and to take leadership roles in civil society.  Asian Women sees prostitution as a form of male violence against women  that can be eradicated.

Asian Women for Equality's membership represents a  range of life experiences common to Asian women, including prostituted  women, as immigrants, naturalized Canadians, permanent residents,  temporary residents, foreign students and Canadian-born offspring of  Asian immigrants to Canada.

Fertile Ground Institute is a non-profit working for ecological and social justice. We provide education to develop smart, effective leadership and organize events that bring together seemingly disparate movements. We also support groups with similar goals by providing fiscal sponsorship and consultation.
