This is a call for participation to the 13th International AWID Forum. It will be held May 5-8 at the Costa do Sauípe resort in Bahia, Brazil and it will be a historic global gathering of women’s rights and social justice activists and movements. The main goals are to celebrate our gains and analyze the lessons; assess our realities; inspire and renew ourselves; and strategize across movements to strengthen solidarity and leverage our diverse, collective power. It is not just an event – a process to seize the moment, disrupt oppression and advance shared visions for a just world.
