The Bay Area Reporter Online | Trans women of color confab</br>seeks to empower »

Two Bay Area trans women of color are part of an unprecedented project intended to build community amongst trans women of color on a global scale. Hosted by the Allied Media Conference, an annual media and technology convention between social justice and community organizers, artists, educators, and entrepreneurs, the inaugural International Trans Women of Color Network Gathering will take place in Detroit in June.

Co-founded and co-coordinated by Lexi Adsit and Askari González of the Bay Area, Bea Fonseca of Los Angeles, and B. Binaohan and Micha Cárdenas of Toronto, Canada, the June 19 network gathering is a one-day meeting of discussions, skill shares, and activities for trans and trans feminine people of color.”

What is the Allied Media Conference, you ask? 

http://amc.alliedmedia.org/amc2011/about/amc-mission

AMC Mission

The Allied Media Conference cultivates strategies for a more just and creative world. We come together to share tools and tactics for transforming our communities through media-based organizing.

AMC Vision

PARTICIPATORY MEDIA TO TRANSFORM OUR SELVES & OUR WORLD

The Allied Media Conference advances our visions for a just and creative world. It is a laboratory for media-based solutions to the matrix of life-threatening problems we face. Since our founding in 1999, we have evolved our definition of media, and the role it can play in our lives – from zines to video-blogging to breakdancing, to communicating solidarity and creating justice. Each conference builds off the previous one and plants the seeds for the next. Ideas and relationships evolve year-round, incorporating new networks of media-makers, technologists and social justice organizers. We draw strength from our converging movements to face the challenges and opportunities of our current moment. We are ready to create, connect and transform.

international-twoc-gathering:

Today is Transgender Day of Visibility! Today is the day for us to thrive! To organize! To resist the systems creating violence in our lives: prisons, capitalism, racism, transphobia, transmisogyny! Today is a day to envision a powerful future for Trans Women of Color! Support us in doing just that by donating to our International Trans Women of Color Network Gathering! This gathering is for trans feminine people, two-spirit people and people who don’t identify with western ideas of gender but identify as gender variant and female or feminine!

We still have $4500 to raise in 13 days! That’s only $346 per day which is only 17 people per day donating $20! 

Thank you all so, so much who have donated, who have given perks, who have put your time into helping organize the perks, who have shared our fundraiser online! Please keep helping us spread the word and reach our goal!
