Wildseeds is excited to be part of a delegation of New Orleans feminists of color attending the INCITE! Color of Violence 4 Conference happening from March 26-29 in Chicago. This gathering will mark INCITE!’s fifteen years of engaging in grassroots organizing projects, critical conversations, national actions, transnational campaigns, and community building strategies to end colonial, racial, and gender-based violence against women of color, trans and queer people of color, and our communities.
COV4 will highlight emerging strategies and new frameworks that focus on ending violence without relying on policing, mass incarceration, restrictive legislation, and other systems of violence and control. Speakers this year will include Angela Davis, Dorothy Roberts, Cece McDonald, and many others.
Wildseeds members will be presenting the following workshop: “Wild Seeds: Collective Healing as Resistance.” The workshop will examine the ways we use Black speculative and science fiction such as the work of Octavia Butler as templates and models of resistance and survival for our selves, families, and communities.
