Welcome to the CARA blog!
It's a new day at CARA! We've been holding it down in Seattle's Central District representing social justice, anti-violence activism and community accountability for 10 years and we're just getting started. Welcome to the new CARA blog, designed to transmit a Black feminist point of view that is sorely lacking in today's public discourse. This is a space to engender critical dialogue on hot button issues and to present the stories that impact women and communities of color that mainstream media outlets fail to cover.
In a climate of anti-feminist, conservative backlash against progressive politics, it is critical that CARA's Black feminist analysis of intersecting race, gender, sex, class, nation, ableism and ageism is part of the public sphere. We look forward to sharing our perspectives and we hope to spark engaging conversations to promote grassroots methods for change that start from the local and impact global systems.
