The coordinators of the International Trans Women of Color Network Gathering are raising funds to cover costs related to the production of the gathering.
The network gathering will include "discussions, movement and collective visioning to work towards building an international network of trans women of color." Donors to the campaign, hosted through indiegogo, are rewarded with perks including signed books and other generous acknowledgments of your support.
Why This Network? Why Now?
We know that trans women of color are magical, powerful, skilled and wise, yet there is still no international network joining us together to address the struggles we face. This network gathering seeks to change that. We hosting a day long network gathering at the 2014 Allied Media Conference in Detroit, Michigan which will include discussions, movement and collective visioning to work towards building an international network of trans women of color!
This network gathering will seek to connect diverse and dispersed trans women of colour so that we can begin to build the bridges, networks, and resources necessary to transform our communities using media and technology. Our network gathering will focus on sharing wisdom and skills between the Trans Women of Colour already living/working/existing on the front lines through a combination of workshops, skill shares, and networking activities. We hope that all of the people involved will walk away with not only the knowledge and connections needed to make change in their own communities, but with an international network of Trans Women of Colour that will aid us all in creating real and lasting change.
