A Call for Participation at the Second Transnational Summit.                              

October 24-28, 2022

Women Caretakers of the Lands and Territories: Challenges and Strategies for Economic, Climate Justice and Technologies for the Common Good.”

The participation and commitment of the compañeras who attended the First Transnational Summit were impressive. Amid the full COVID 19 pandemic, we gathered in seven countries simultaneously, dialogued with women at the grassroots in four countries, organized 12  roundtable discussions, and weaving actions throughout the year for equality. Join us!                  

Below you will find the registration form.

Background. At the First Summit, we met during the week of October 11-15 to delve into the significant challenges that women and girls face in our countries of origin and why we are forced to emigrate, leaving everything behind, and what we love. We encourage dialogues between diverse leaders of feminist and social organizations and Mesoamerican, Caribbean, and Latina leaders during this process. We visited thirteen communities and dialogued with indigenous women, campesinas, Garífuna, migrant and Haitian women, and leaders on Mexico's southern border. In addition, we created a collective Manifesto and a route for follow-up and continuity of work in continuous dialogue and political advocacy actions such as the Briefing to the US Congress on the State of the situation regarding women in Central America and the launch underway at the Edna Viruel-Fuentes Transnational Feminist Training School.

The Second Summit is part of a set of intersectionalities that today are crucial for our survival, both as defenders of our ancestral lands and territories: against the exploitation of natural resources, sources of economic sustainability, labor exclusion, individual and collective property titles, as well as technologies that do not facilitate our collective well-being.

The expulsion, violence, and murders of the bodies of indigenous, black, rural caretakers of forests, lands, and territories are not new. There´s no news that the colonial, capitalist, patriarchal, and prosecutorial proposal to our Continent was and continues to be unacceptable, unbearable, and unsustainable.

This call aims to understand the situations experienced by women defenders of their lands and territories and the proposals for the transition towards a green, decolonial feminist economy based on ancestral knowledge.

We hope you enjoy the story that is separated from the poster of this call.
