I'm excited to participate in the Feminism Organizing School, it will contribute to deepening Cooperation Jackson's theory and practice. I see my responsibility as a member of Cooperation Jackson, as a mother, as a birth worker, to provide a Black radical feminist analysis for our work and to push us all towards practice that is truly aligned with our theory. Women have to be at the center of our efforts to build a solidarity economy that is transformative.

October 1-5, 2017 we bring together 70 grassroots leaders to create a shared vision for the grassroots feminist movement we are building.
Throughout history women, gender-oppressed people of color and Indigenous peoples across the globe have had to fight for their safety, livelihood, and basic human rights. We have shouldered the disproportionate burdens of a global economy that relies on our domination and the exploitation of our planet’s natural resources. The current moment represents an escalation in the continued attack on social, economic, and climate justice. In the age of Trump and the rise of the right wing, among many other issues, misogyny is becoming normalized, reproductive rights are being threatened, and hate crimes are increasing.
In the face of this context, we are organizing a Feminist Organizing School. Through intensive training, we will delve into a theoretical and historical consideration of the intersections of patriarchy, homophobia, transphobia, white supremacy and climate change, and will support each other in the task of bringing a feminist agenda to our daily work.
Support the political leadership development of grassroots feminist leaders!
