Join us for a conversation with Venezuelan organizers Maria Gabriela Del Pilar Blanco & Paola Martucci Gómez, of the Sex and Gender Diversity Revolutionary Alliance (ASGDRe). ASGDRe is an organization focused on building consciousness about the LGBTQ struggle in Latin America and the Caribbean. Their organization recently celebrated 7 years since its founding and has worked with a wide variety of national and international grassroots movements. Their work spans political education workshops, cultural events, literary publications, legislative campaign accompaniment, social consciousness raising, food sovereignty projects and movement building within the Bolivarian process. Gaby and Paola will speak to the political, social and economic dynamics currently at play in Venezuela. They will teach us about grassroots organizing with campesinos, students, feminists, LGBTQs, Afro-Venezuelans, ... and educating about sexual and gender movements by the Alliance. They come to build solidarity with our social justice movement. Accompanied by Jeanette Charles, brought by Witness for Peace Southwest. ______________________________________________________ Agenda: 4:30pm-5:00pm Potluck, Meet and Greet Presenters 5:00pm-6:00pm Presentation 6:00pm-6:45pm Q&A, local organizers build solidarity through sharing Location: 4312 SE Stark St, Multnomah Friends Meeting, (downstairs to the right) Suggested Donations: $5-$75 (no one turned away) *A variety of materials, books, and artisan handicrafts from Venezuela and other parts of Latin America and the Caribbean will also be for sale.* More info: Witness for Peace: https://wfpsw.org/about/ ASGDRe blog: https://asgdre.wordpress.com/2016/10/12/iniciada-la-gira-asgdre-witness-for-peace-2016/ https://www.facebook.com/events/332242510469455/
