She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Emi Koyama: “War on Trafficking”? Resisting Criminalization as Solution to the “Modern Day Slavery”

When: 6PM on Thursday, January 10th
Where: UW HUB, room 332
In light of the Women’s Center upcoming conference on human trafficking, the Q Center has partnered with the ASUW Women’s Action Committee, Queer Student Commission, Student Disability Commission, QPOCA, and Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at UWB to bring Emi Koyama to the UW. Emi Koyama is a multi-issue social justice activist and writer synthesizing feminist, Asian, survivor, dyke, queer, sex worker, intersex, genderqueer and crip politics. Emi will be bringing a much needed additional perspective to this conversation, discussing how law enforcement centered anti-trafficking efforts are not in line with anti-racist, anti-oppression, queer liberatory politics. Emi’s writing is available online at http://eminism.org/

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
