Latin American Indigenous Women's Perspectives: From Community to International Organizing
Wednesday, June 1, 2005, 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
New College of California, 780 Valencia St, San Francisco
As political and economic forces of globalization are spreading, spaces have opened within international discussions. In response, Native peoples have been refining their activism, creating networks and alliances, and affecting far-reaching international policies, while still answering to their home communities.

Our guests will be coming to San Francisco after attending the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues at the United Nations (New York), where they are regular and vocal participants.
