Indigenous Womxn & Womxn of Color Summit 2018
WSCO hosted our 1st Indigenous Womxn and Womxn of Color Summit on September 15th. We thank all the womxn who spent their half day with us to celebrate our bodies, minds, emotions and spirit.
Through generations Indigenous Womxn and Womxn of Color have been the backbone of our families and neighborhoods. This summit we are aiming to center the voices, stories, and lived experiences of IWWOC of color in our neighborhoods, our city, and government. This includes Femmes, Queer, Trans, and Gender Fluid people of color whom do not identify with or feel comfortable or safe in cis-male spaces. Join us as we create a space to honor what makes us up as IWWOC: our physical, our intellectual, our emotional and our spiritual.
WSCO held its’ first Indigenous Women & Women of Color (IWWOC) gathering in February to create a sacred space of ritual that aims for systemic advancement of IWWOC. This table is dedicated to providing and creating a resilient space for IWWOC. This summit seeks to create a healing and sacred space for the powerful voices and bodies of IWWOC of St. Paul to flex our collective muscle through connecting, storytelling, and transformative conversations.
February 15th WSCO kicked off its first West Side Indigenous Women and Women of Color (IWWOC) table. A monthly gathering space for IWWOC. The purpose of the West Side IWWOC table is to provide the necessary tools of leadership support, strengthening, and training. WSCO is creating a sacred space of ritual for the systemic advancement of IWWOC. This is not only space for leadership development on the West Side, City of St. Paul, and the region, it’s also a space where we actively demolish the dominant narrative and replace it with our lived truths and realities of West Side IWWOC. WSCO will host monthly dinners to build connection, community and the culture of a collective, and provide trainings in leadership development. All gatherings will center around healing justice and be trauma informed.
Are you an IWWOC? Are you interested in joining our next dinner? It's every 3rd Thursday at 5:30PM at the Baker Center
