Brought to you by BlackManFluff at

MP3 File and Podcast Interview Found by Clicking here.

Dear friends, compañeras, allies, and friends who I will come to know soon who are working for a better world,

There are several awesome free events taking place over the next five days as part of the International Women's Week in Resistance. The Freeschool and the blackman f.l.u.f.f. podcast and radio show has an MP3 podcast (online radio episode) with an interview of Mao and Alejeandra, member of the Women of Color Coalition, that you can find at the above link.

It is an interview with two amazing women of color, Mao and Alejandra, just a few minutes ago on the Evergreen Campus who are part of the Women of Color Coalition at Evergreen and have free events as part of the International Women's Week - Women in Resistance.

They have some really awesome events and could really use some extra publicity so please circulate this information.

In the interview they give very exciting details about their events that are detailed below and happen over the next 4 days so you could play it on the Media Island radio anytime over the next 4 days and it will still be very relevant and timely.

The Evergreen Women of Color Coalition accepts Evergreen students and Non-Evergreen students women of color into their group. In regards to the events people of all genders, races and backgrounds are welcome at their events so everyone should feel welcome.

Even if you don't listen to the interview, please be sure to check out the Women Of Color Coalition's new Twitter page that the Freeschool helped to set up which gives details about the WOCC upcoming events found here:

And I Do Survive

This cinema verite documentary chronicles Michelle Lopez, a Trinidadian lesbian who pursues the American Dream & a green card in a country that denies her citizenship because she is an HIV+ immigrant. While juggling life as a single mom & devoted religious follower, she organizes to reverse this discriminatory law & other practices that infringe on the quality of life for HIV+ people. As the gay marriage becomes debated nationally, Michelle’s partner requests a commitment and their relationship mirrors the divide within LGBT, AIDS, & immigrant communities.

Sistahs Survive & Thrive:

Ten short videos portraits of Black and Latina women bring us into their worlds and reveal how they live with HIV/AIDS. The collection of videos are the launch of an interactive web-based project—a living AIDS quilt comprised of auto-biographical and biographical vignettes that reflects the feminized impact of HIV/AIDS and will include a range of women and girls from diverse ethnicities, ages, socio-economic class.

Media Training:

Learn how to use your own digital camera (and other devices) to create a documentary-style short film yourself!

Bring your digital still camera, videocam or cell phone so you can contribute your story or AIDS tips to the Quilt!
