Hello YEPE Supporters!
Below is a rundown of the programs we completed in 2020 as well as the programs we have done so far in 2021.
Our next cyber conference is on June 17th and a Juneteenth Celebration on June 19th.
Title: Re-queering identity: colonialism, sexuality, and gender
‘We’ve (always been) here, we’ve (always been) queer, get over it’
In their bid to maintain power, colonial regimes resorted not only to military force but imposed and controlled the identity of their subjects both at home and abroad. Anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and social values were a core element of colonial power. Today homosexuality remains criminalised in may countries, and new waves of anti-trans legislation and broader LGBTQ+ discrimination are taking hold in Europe and North America. How can we redefine and reclaim gender, sexuality and identity in the context of colonialism?
In celebration of Pride, Paths to Action brings together an international panel of LGBTQ+ activists working to re-queer identity. Join us for the discussion.
We hope you'll join us next month on https://www.midheaven.network/ and in the meantime, please check out our past work!
International Women’s Day
“WOMEN MAKING CHANGE” + “BIRTHING A NEW WORLD”
Featuring Jelena Micic, Ruth Khakame, Dr. Jennifer Jewell & Julie Harris Moderated By Emma Pritchard + Rebecca Irby
Conversationalists on Feminism and Women’s rights often reference the sidelining/ devaluation of Women’s labor in fields such as domestic services, care work, and sex work. However, we rarely hear from Women actively working for change within these professions, and when we do — it is in framing and context given by men.
This world needs the regenerative, life-sustaining, and interconnected energies of the Feminine to break through the status quo and create the world we want. This International Women’s Day, join Emma Pritchard, Rebecca Irby, and our esteemed panel of international speakers in a soaring review of the crucial system changes needed today, and what each of us can do to bring them about.
