Dear Community,

Kamalayan Kollective invites you to PINAYspeak: Dialogues for Action and Healing, a one-day community-building intensive for self-identified Pinays and their allies. PINAYspeak will be hosted at the University of California, San Diego Cross-Cultural Center on Saturday, April 25, 2009.

PINAYspeak will include workshop sessions, speakers and focused conversations in an effort to explore and narrate the stories and experiences of Pinays. Our vision is to collectively create a space that inspires Pinays to organize, mobilize, and be in community.

Participants will engage in the political, the artistic and the spiritual as ways to share voices, speak our pain and our power, and to cultivate radical societal transformation and personal growth.

Because your work is inspiring and vital to the empowerment of Pinays, womyn of color communities, queer communities, and more, we invite you to partake in PINAYspeak. With this event just under a month away, we need as much help as possible. Our goals are to:

• Create community with Pinays of various backgrounds
• Engage in mutual learning, teaching and self-reflection
• Validate, relate and narrate Pinay experiences and our multiple identities
• Nurture and support personal growth and radical transformation
• Envision and practice our agency and activism

Thus, we need your assistance in the following ways:

1) Attending PINAYspeak and spreading the word! (via e-mail, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, websites, forums, etc.)
2) Tabling for your organization or cause, or becoming a vendor

We understand April 25th is quickly approaching and we strongly believe that through collaboration, we will create this intimate and necessary space for healing and activism.

We appreciate all that you do and all that you are.

In Solidarity,

Kamalayan Kollective
