Indigenous and Women of Colour Rise

Updated: May 20, 2019

Celebrate International Women’s Day with the powerful feminist voices of Dominique Christina, author and two-time slam poetry world champion, 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.


Listen to the Feminist Current Podcast about the event



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.
