YES MEANS YES: Featured Speaker Jaclyn Friedman
Buy some chones!
Patricia Castillo, Executive Director, PEACE Initiative
WIKI: The Pink Chaddi Campaign (Pink Underwear Campaign) is a nonviolent protest movement launched in India in February 2009 in response to notable incidences of violent conservative and right-wing activism against perceived violations of Indian culture, when a group of women were attacked in a pub in Mangalore. The campaign was conceived particularly in protest against a threat by Pramod Muthalik of the Sri Ram Sena (also spelled as Sri Ram Sena, Sri Ram Sene and Sriram Sena), an orthodox Hindu group based in Mangalore. Mr.Muthalik threatened to marry off and take other action on any young couples found together on Valentine’s Day.
We’re seeking chones decorated by community members and groups for our upcoming fundraiser April 11, 2010. This event will also feature Jaclyn Friedman, author of Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power & A World Without Rape. The chones will be publicly displayed throughout April to generate a dialogue about living in a community without sexual violence. Your contributions will also proudly be sold for $20 to benefit the Media Justice League and PEACE Initiative organizations.
We are rasing $3000.00 to send a San Antonio delegation to Detroit for the Allied Media Conference. Your contribution will make it possible for 12 people to attend a 4 day hands on DIY media conference with a full track of workshops to end violence.
