Be the Change Community Action: Feminist Resistance & Voter Registration

Be the Change LogoWe'll be coming together this afternoon to make connections between local women's resistance and the activism of women's advocates in other countries, through a presentation and discussion led by Cynthia Enloe. Women in Syria, Turkey, Ireland, Bosnia, Japan all have a stake in our resistance.

Because voting is a vital part of influencing, we will also provide voter registration forms as well as instructions on how to register to vote online and resources to make sure others in your community are registered.

Robbie Adams, Project Coordinator for The Boston Center for Refugee Health & Human Rights will also be on hand talking about other actions people can take and ways to get involved. 

20% of sales from 3-5PM will be donated to The Boston Center for Refugee Health & Human Rights.

Cynthia Enloe is Professor of Political Science at Clark University and is the author of many books, including Bananas, Beaches, and Bases: Making Feminist Sense of International Politics,  Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women's Lives and The Curious Feminist Searching for Women in a New Age of Empire. Enloe won the Howard Zinn Lifetime Achievement in Peace Studies Award from the Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA).
