I have about three more days's worth of reporting to do on Melbourne so will be working to catch up, but for now here are pictures of Melbourne. I am leaving for Sydney in a few hours and just getting a lot of last minute things done...enjoy!
This blog follows my feminist action work from fall 2008 to summer 2009 as I travel to meet, learn from and mobilize women with disabilities to take action on our human and civil rights. I am also exploring the Deaf women's advocacy scene.
From September 28 to November 29, 2008, I visited the following cities:
Seoul, South Korea: Sept 28-Oct 7 Austin, TX: Oct 8-9 Houston, TX: Oct 10 Austin, TX: Oct 11 Missoula, MT: Oct 12-14 Washington, DC: Oct 15-19 New York City: Oct 19-22 Chicago, IL: Oct 23-26 Melbourne, Australia: Oct 27-Nov 2 Sydney, Australia: Nov 3-Nov 12 Wellington, New Zealand: Nov 12-14 Berkeley, CA: Nov 15-16 Atlanta, GA: Nov 17-18 Tucson, AZ/Southeastern AZ: Nov 19-29
On June 9 and 10, 2009, I will be co-facilitating a FRIDA feminist disability rights organizing training at Liberty Resources in Philadelphia, PA. Please contact me if you are in the area and would like to attend. In addition, a feminist disability rights organizing training is in the works for Chicago. I am also available for discussion and trainings on feminist disability rights organizing in your area---feel free to get in touch!
I would love to hear from anyone interested in partnering to further feminist disability/Deaf rights. This has been made possible through the Founder's Award for Young Women Advocates, presented by the Chicago Foundation for Women.
