Catch a Fire the Caribbean: Regional Feminist Grounding, May 18+19, 2012, Barbados.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: Friday, March 23, 2012.

CODE RED will bring 12 young feminists from across the Caribbean to Barbados for a regional grounding on May 18 and 19. We are looking for passionate and engaged leaders who are working at the community level. Do you know someone who should be there? Tell us! redforgender [at] gmail [dot] com.

The meeting is envisioned as a starting point towards regional feminist mobilisation of a new generation of Caribbean activists whose outlook is regional, who are well networked into their communities and who are connected to each other. Some young women from the region have started their own initiatives and could benefit from access to funding, mentorship and opportunities to grow and develop these initiatives into institutions. One of the objectives of this meeting is to determine how we can support each other and become stronger voices for social change in the region.

Persons who are working specifically in the area of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights are especially welcome.

The participation of 12 young women from the English-speaking Caribbean and Haiti will be fully funded.  Country representation will be taken into account as part of the selection process.

Barbados-based activists and other participants from the region who have their own funding are also invited to participate.

Want to be there?

Send us your contact information (including SKYPE ID) and a brief bio outlining your activist work.

It’s that simple!
