Call for Participation - 13th AWID International Forum on Women's Rights and Development

Kind of Resource: 

13th AWID International Forum on Women's Rights and Development. Salvador, Bahia, Brazil - May 5-8, 2016

Submit a proposal to organize a session at the Forum by 26 June 2015!

This invitation is for you, those who believe in futures free from gendered oppressions, the realization of full rights for people and planet, and self-determination from the body to the nation!

At a time of increased global repression and the attempted silencing of progressive voices, the 2016 Forum of the Association for Women's Rights in Development is a space for re-imagining and co-creation.

The Forum is a space for progressive feminist voices and our allies to imagine futures free from gendered oppressions, racial, ethnic, and economic injustice, environmental degradation, and war and violence, to renew solidarities and advance concrete joint action agendas. It is a space for all who believe in the values of dignity, rights and justice for people and the planet to join in a creative disruption of the dominance and oppression that has sought to silence alternatives. And it is a space where the ideas and experiences of diverse voices and movements will converge to examine the lessons of the past, conjure fresh perspectives and daring ideas, and explore new ways of working together that move us beyond our existing silos and build our collective power.
