People’s Movement Assembly Launches World Courts of Women on Poverty in the U.S.

Read this article to learn more about an approach that “brings to life the world that we know is possible. ”

“Most World Courts of Women have focused on specific clusters of issues that are especially relevant to their region, but they have shared the common aims of destabilizing dominant narratives and bringing the realities of the everyday violence in people’s lives to the forefront. Speakers bear witness to many injustices, but the Courts are also about empowerment and the validation of women’s diverse experiences and subject positions.”

The Women’s Economic Agenda Project will Coordinate The Western Court (held in Oakland, CA, May 10-13). Check out their website for more information.

“Because poverty is rapidly growing in the U.S., and how to end poverty gets hardly any serious public discussion, the Women’s Economic Agenda Project and its allies are mounting a series of public hearings to shed more light on this shameful, mostly hidden issue.”
