Constructing Peace in Colombia: A Feminist Vision

Join us for the 2017 Luncheon to learn about the intersectional organizing work of the Feminist Antimilitarist Network in Colombia from Carol Rojas. The Colombia Peace Accords, while a step toward peace, face many challenges.  There is an urgent need to rebuild the community and collective ties broken by war. Seeking to build historical memory is also a necessary step in constructing a political project to make the transition as a country to a plural, broad, and diverse democracy, where women can be political protagonists and not victims. To construct peace in Colombia in this difficult time, the Network uses popular education to promote demilitarization and the eradication of systems of oppression based on sex, class, and race.
