Where: SOHO Lofts - 167 Spring Street (Buzzer 3), New York, NY 10012
The Cipher Project in partnership with The Audre Lorde Project and Queer Black Cinema presents:
Zami '10: Haiti, Hope, and Homeland - a community forum focused on raising conversation about Haiti, its history, and current status post-earthquake. We invite all members of the community to come and take part in our cipher and make connections between what is happening in Haiti (and why) and what is happening their various "homelands," whether those be other countries, identities, bodies, etc.
The Cipher Project believes that if we begin to understand the intersecting struggles and celebrations we hold with other communities, we can begin to bond, grow, and work as a collective for the justice of all of our communities. Though our initiative serves women and the lgbtq community this community cipher is for everyone.
Proceeds will be donated through Partners In Health
