CALLING ALL MEN AND WOMEN:  

We are calling upon all men and women from anti-violence, social justice, economic justice, and grassroots organizations to attend
this very important event dedicated to working toward
the purpose of

ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN OF COLOR
AND THEIR COMMUNITIES
 
through enhancing leadership skills for women of color, increasing ally skills for aspiring allies, and discussing concrete ways to enhance services and outreach to women of color survivors and their communities.


In 2010, the first National Call to Action Institute and Conference was a historic success as one of the few conferences bringing both women of color, men of all races, and white women together to:

1. Identify and address serious factors impacting and exacerbating violence against women of color
2. Promote the importance of women of color in leadership as the key ingredient in providing culturally relevant services to women of color and their communities
3. Examine the barriers that women of color often face within anti-violence programs in reaching and serving their communities.



The Women of Color Network (WOCN), in partnership with A CALL TO MEN, Share Time Wisely Consulting Services, and Clarina Howard Nichols Center, is excited to OPEN REGISTRATION for the 2012 National Call to Action Institute and Conference on July 9-13, 2012 in St Paul, MN.

The theme for this ground breaking experience is "Collective Empowerment, Collective Liberation". The framework for the NCTA Institute and Conference is based on the following guiding principles toward ending violence against women of color and their communities:

 

* Uniting women of color across ethnicity, race, age, citizenship, sexual orientation, disability, body type, faith, discipline, and locality for collective survival in ending violence against women of color and their communities.

 

* Inspiring those working to be allies to aim for collective liberation in challenging racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, ageism and other forms of oppression and bias in ending violence against women of color and their communities.

This unique Institute and Conference will feature 5 Major Topics Impacting Women of Color Victims and Survivors of Violence

  1. Tribal Sovereignty
  2. Trafficking
  3. Homicide
  4. Gender Identity
  5. Immigration

Additional subjects include self-care, economic justice, anti-oppression, building multicultural alliances, leadership and capacity building, and other key topics.   

 

The 2012 National Call to Action offers 2-Day Institute (one for Women of Color, one for Men, and one for White Women Aspiring Allies) with joint keynotes throughout, and a 2-Day Conference bringing all groups together for workshops, plenaries, and a Cultural Cabaret and Marketplace.
