Through generations, Indigenous Womxn and Womxn of Color have been the backbone of our families and neighborhoods. WSCO held its first Indigenous Women & Women of Color (IWWOC) gathering in February, 2018 to create a sacred, resilient space of ritual that aims for systemic advancement of IWWOC.
The purpose of the West Side IWWOC Table is to create a space where IWWOC can come together to build leadership, collective and personal power, healing justice, and thriving lives on the West Side and the region through trainings, education, and diving deeper into self. It is also a space where we actively demolish the dominant narrative and replace it with our lived truths and realities of West Side IWWOC.
WSCO hosted our 1st Indigenous Womxn and Womxn of Color Summit on September 15th, 2018. Together, we created a healing and sacred space for IWWOC of St. Paul to flex our collective muscle through connecting, storytelling, and transformative conversations.
In February and March 2019, we hosted Caucus Trainings. 32 IWWOC participated, representing 6 out of the 7 Wards in St. Paul.
We had a great turnout for Ward 2 Caucus, with many of us West Siders becoming delegates and passing resolutions!
