For the one year anniversary of the first Zaptista Encuentro for Women who struggle Im sharing a free pdf of the Corazones Diasporicos report back from the encuentro “Muxeres En Lucha.”
This zine is the collective work of five women of color in diaspora who live at intersections of oppressions and resiliances. We created this work to share the powerful experience hosted by our Zapatista compañeras and to share our own palabra. We believe its important for our voices to as women in diaspora, women traveling not for leaisure but to connect, learn, build with other women who struggle against capitalism and patriarchy.
As you may have heard, this years encuentro was cancelled. IF you have not had a chance to read the letter from Zaptista women to women who struggle all over the world about the cancelation please read it. You can find one tranlation here.

"You Are Enough is a visual arts show that calls forth our strategies of resistance, radical self-love, and breaking the silence in order to shirk off the shame associated with Crazy. This shame demands our very lives as sacrifice, but we have the power, though collective voices, to banish it. Artists name and reclaim our Crazy to become more fully embodied and more recognizable to ourselves and one another."
The homepage of Esquire, one of the biggest men's magazines in the country featured this photo of an activist wearing a Hex the Patriarchy Tshirt (Designed by myself and Lacey Johnson btw) facing off against fascists and nazis during a failed conservative rally in Berkeley. I mean, I can clearly see its our design. And I think it means the Hex is working.
