A bell hooks Book Club & Support Group
Tues. Feb. 25. 10am til Noon
Everyone is welcome.
Please listen to audiozine bell hooks "Understanding Patriarchy" on Youtube prior to the meeting.
bell hooks says "patriarchy does not have a gender" and it continues to exist because both sexes continue to participate in it.
We will be studying Chapter Five of "Feminism is for Everybody" in depth by bell hooks at 6:30pm
"Feminism is for Everybody" is available for free online as a pdf. Please read Chapter 6 prior to the meeting.
At 11am members are invited to discuss problems in their lives they are facing associated
with patriarchy (for example your boss makes a pass at you, and you cannot afford to report them
because you are afraid of losing your job) (your son is being bullied at school because he wore a pink shirt)etc.
We explore how we have been wounded by patriarchy. How we participate in patriarchy and
what we are doing to overthrow patriarchy.
At our meetings, hot pink "Deconstruct Patriarchy" buttons,
& business cards which are a feminist rant against patriarchal speech are available, as well as
the "Daily Abuse" a compilation of 47 women worldwide who tell their stories of sexual, domestic and childhood abuse, edited by Angela Orlando.
We meet the last Friday of every month at 10 am.
Our Paint Bar Classes are held in our antique Pioneer Bus located in our parking lot. 100% of the profits from the paint bar will go to CAUSE a 501C3 for scholarships for children's pottery lessons & to purchase a new bus. The new bus, an art mobile will offer free art lessons to lower income kids at their schools. Call or text Maxine at 917 705 3803 to make an appointment in the People's Paint Bar Bus.
There are many legal immigrants that Ice continues to release. Beginning August, they will be staying at the Juvenile Detention Center. Catholic Community Services as well as Casa Alita are in desperate need of volunteers & they want the immigrants to have a warm welcome in Tucson. This is an ongoing crisis. You can drop off dried, canned, and packaged food, snack food, back packs, clothing & shoes at Ward 2, as well as the Tucson Clay Co-op,
& Casa Alitas. Presently they need sweaters, jackets, socks because some of them are heading to cold climates.
