Wearebornfree! Empowerment Radio #6 Women* Space is Everywhere!

June 12th, 5pm-10pm, Waldemarstr. 46, 10999 Berlin

about:

3 months ago refugee and migrant women* occupied the main stage of the International Refugee Conference in Hamburg. We talked about the motivation behind this political intervention and its consequences. What is refugee women’s* role in the movement and how can we build links between feminist and refugee activism? 
We explored these and other topics on a wonderful Sunday evening with our guests Bahar from Kanal, Jennifer Kamau and Lea Höppner from IWS, La Toya Manly-Spain, Mai Shutta, Rajaa, Zari Harat & our live-audience.
The talkshow was accompanied by DJ*_ane Masta Sai
 and Amdi prepared the food. 
The evening was hosted and moderated by the team of Wearebornfree! Empowerment Radio.
