Celebrating Survivors & Indigenous Women Rising
Wednesday, November 06, 2019 at 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Naco Taco 297 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge MA, 02139
For many of the MIT community, it has been a rough start to the academic year, in which we learned that MIT not only took money from sexual predators but invited them to campus and covered their tracks. We want to invite you out for a night of positive social action and free tacos to support the power of survivors in the face of injustice. Come join us as we raise money for a phenomenal group of Indigenous women innovators.
Indigenous Women Rising (IWR) is committed to honoring Native & Indigenous People’s inherent right to equitable and culturally safe health options through accessible health education, resources and advocacy.
IWR won an award at last year's “Make the Breast Pump Not Suck” Hackathon at the Media Lab with their creation of beautiful, breastfeeding-friendly Native regalia and they continue to do amazing things for reproductive justice in the Southwest.
Come celebrate Indigenous Women Rising with us - here are the details:
