Over the weekend, 40 members of Virginia Organizing met in Harrisonburg for our first workshop on dismantling patriarchy and working toward gender justice.
Over the three days, participants developed their understanding of patriarchy, made commitments to gender justice in a Women’s, Men’s, and a Non-binary caucus, and envisioned what a world without patriarchy might be like.
We call it the “People’s House,” and its pillars are Beyond the Binary, Non-violence, Communal Support, Shared Labor, and Healing.
Members included several Spanish speakers. A big shout out to the Virginia Language Justice Collective for providing us with fantastic interpretation!
