AF3IRM NYC'S 8TH ANNUAL SUMMER SCHOOL OF WOMEN’S ACTIVISM (SSOWA)

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 is a woman of color space.

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 recharting 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.

Lunch, refreshments, and training materials for all four sessions are included in the cost of attendance. Children are welcome.
