Help Regeneración Indiego-GROW Our Work!

Regeneración NYC - our amazing collective of volunteer childcare providers - is launching an online fundraising campaign to support our work of building movements with kids and families! 

Our work runs on home-cooked meals and love, but we need your help with making our visions a reality! 
Between buying face paint and games, creating children’s programming, hiring skilled trainers to help us build our vision and create long term organizational plans, we have some real costs. As a collective volunteer network (and 
not a non-profit), we are asking our communities for 
help with raising funds! 

You can learn more about us and the goals we have in the coming year by visiting our page on Indiegogo. 

We hope you'll make a modest (or generous) contribution for our journey, and in return, get some really cool perks available nowhere else. Please spread the word to your friends, family, and networks! 

PS - if you're in NYC: please join our community dinner and fundraiser on June 1st at the Brooklyn Commons. Hope to see you there - and thanks for all your support! 

Join us for a COMMUNITY DINNER AND FUNDRAISER! (note the time change)

Regeneración Childcare is going to be cooking up another scrumptious and joyful dinner to fundraise for our trip to the Allied Media Conference, continue community building and support our local work with groups here in NYC!

We invite you to join us for a lovely summer night of music, games (plus face painting!), good food, good drinks, and good friends! It will be an "open house" party at the Brooklyn Commons where you can come and eat a sit down meal, or have a drink and mingle anytime from 5-11pm on Saturday, June 1st. 
 
Please come! Bring friends, and kids, and especially friends with kids!

Come celebrate INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY with Raha!

Raha Iranian Feminist Collective invites all of us to celebrate International Women’s Day with them: 

We mark this date in order to reflect on the struggles of the past year, to celebrate our successes, and to discuss our collective hopes and future. 
The theme this year is Sanctioning Iran: a Feminist Response. As ever more punishing rounds of sanctions are imposed on Iran, we ask how patriarchy and foreign intervention intersect and impact the lives of Iranian women. Come find out why feminist politics are crucial for understanding and opposing these sanctions and what can we do here. 

Sanctioning Iran: a Feminist Response will present first hand accounts of life under U.S.-imposed sanctions in Iran and Iraq, and offer a historical look at feminist struggles against U.S. militarism that took place in the 1980s. 

Plus solidarity greetings from organizations and activists whose amazing work towards gender and sexuality justice we are proud to honor! Stick around afterwards to celebrate more than a century of the fight for women’s liberation with a DJ-ed dance party! 

Speakers include: 

    • Silvia Federici is a feminist activist, teacher, and author, most recently of Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle. In 1972, she was a co-founder of the International Feminist Collective, the organization that launched the Wages For Housework campaign. 
    • Zeinab Saleh is an anthropologist, teacher and political essayist whose work appears in venues such as jadaliyya.com. Her research focuses on community formations among the Iraqi diaspora in the UK in the aftermath of the 2003 Iraq invasion. Zeinab lived in Iraq under the US-UN sanctions regime.
    • Samira is a member of Havaar: Iranian Initiative Against War, Sanctions and State Repression and a leading organizer of a new anti-sanctions campaign.
    • Catherine Sameh is a member of Raha Iranian Feminist Collective and the Associate Director of the Barnard Center for Research on Women.
Following the program we will continue the celebration Raha-style, with food, drink, dancing, and of course, cake! We look forward to seeing you there!
