Celebrating a Culture of Care: Int'l Women's Day 2012

For the past two years, Regeneración has observed March 8, International Women's Day with Raha Iranian Feminist Collective, at their annual celebration. This year, we were honored to share our thoughts about what this day means to us. Here are some of the reasons we celebrate:

For International Women's Day, we at Regeneración want to pay homage to the fierce women who birthed this project... Black and Latina women in Bushwick, Brooklyn doing amazing collective work – from making media to calling out sexual harassment by cops to traveling to engaging with grassroots organizing in Argentina, where they were so inspired by the way children and elders are integrated into the movement that they came back to bushwick and created a childcare cooperative. Through this childcare cooperative, Regeneración was born.

Regeneración Reps at Occupy Forum

Regeneración had the opportunity to speak a little about its work during a workshop about Labor, Care and Reproduction at the Occupy Forum on the Commons. This three-day Making Worlds conference (Feb 16-18, 2012) included presentations and workshops on a number of topics related to commoning in the context of the Occupy movement.

During the panel, we shared our philosophy of why childcare is political work, and our thoughts about how engaging with children transforms our movements. We were also super excited to hear about the amazing projects of our co-presenters, including the Feminist/Queer/Postcolonial Commons, the Challenging Male Supremacy Project, Domestic Workers United, Occupy Infancy and Holistic Mom Lactivists.

Most of all, we were thrilled to see folks of all ages - including little ones! - at the panel, and want to give a special shout out to the organizers for their brilliant communal note-taking effort, which had adults and kids working and playing together by adding notes and doodles to rolls of paper laid out on the floor. Hooray!!

More about this event can be found on their wiki here or in the Making Worlds program.
