Sister Fierce

So, I just created this piece a few hours ago for my sister Carm. The piece is gonna be made into a flyer for an event she put together for April 23rd at the UCSD Cross Cultural Center. Event info below.
Womyn of Color Against Sexual Violence and Exploitation
A Cross-Cultural Center Intern Self-Initiated Project
Cross-Cultural Center
Thursday, April 23
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Women of color are subjected to routine, institutionalized sexual violence and exploitation. Third World and indigenous women in the U.S. and around the globe are raped in times of war, assaulted at the border, trafficked, hypersexualized, and experience high rates of domestic abuse. This presentation and community initiative will focus on how sexual violence is tied to larger structures of violence – orientalism, colonialism, militarism, and racism, and how political organizing, grassroots efforts and peer-based services can be used as powerful tools for radical transformation.
