|Organizer/Author||Green Party of Alameda County|
The Green Party of Alameda County (GPAC) presents at its March 11th "Green Sunday" the "War of Words: Does Patriarchy Still Rule over Communication in Movements?" at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library, 6501 Telegraph Avenue, in Oakland. Green Sunday begins at 5 p.m. and ends at 6:30 p.m.
Is what we say as important as the words we use to say it? Could it be that the Green Party has not grown in Alameda County because of a patriarchy that is reflected in how we talk to one another? Does the movement suffer from the same patriarchy we criticize others of having? Do how we speak and what we say have an impact on our ability to move forward more swiftly? Join your community as we engage in this conversation.
The presenters are: Meleiza Figueroa of the Movement School for Revolutionaries; Vicente Cruz of the Oakland Greens, Producer of Oakland Greens Dinner and a Movie Discussion series, and a sports educator; and Aidan "AJ" Hill (they/them/theirs) of the GPAC County Council and an emerging Bay Area political activist living on the intersection of multiple identities.
