Día Internacional de la Mujer

un extracto del boletín de Fuerza Unida, página 5.El Comité de Planificación para la Marcha del Día Internacional de la Mujer en San Antonio se reunió cada semana del año 2012 y continua su esfuerzo en este año, 2013! El sábado, 9 de marzo, a las 10am se reunirán mujeres con toda nuestra comunidad en el Parque Dignowity en el este de nuestra ciudad. De ese sitio, marcharán hasta llegar a la Plaza del Zacate (Milam Park) donde se ofrecerá un programa que incluirá oradoras, actuaciones musicales, arte en vivo, actividades para los niños, información de organizaciones comunitarias, más comida para comprar y disfrutar durante la presentación!

Cada año, el Día Internacional de la Mujer se celebra en grande en varias partes del mundo, el 8 de marzo. En San Antonio, Tejas, por 22 años se ha celebrado este día con una marcha por las calles de nuestras vecindades en el este, el oeste, en el sur y en el centro de la ciudad. Por décadas, Fuerza Unida ha participado en los planes mara la marcha, anualmente programada para el día sábado más cerca a la fecha, 8 de marzo. Otras organizaciones que también han participado en mantener la tradición de la marcha y aún mantienen un activo apoyo de estos esfuerzos, más grupos que en años recientes se han unido al esfuerzo incluyen, P.EA.C.E. Initiative, Martinez Street Women’s Center, Domesticas en Acción, UNITE HERE!, Southwest Workers Union, Domésticas Unidas y más. En años recientes, se ha extendido el alcance del grupo y de nuestro mensaje con la creciente participación de individuos de la comunidad que llevan la lucha por la justicia a diario en sus vidas cotidianas y por vocación. Los temas que tratamos abarcan los siguientes y más...el seguro médico, alojamiento, la educación, el medio ambiente, sueldos justos y el impacto de las injusticias y la violencia sobre mujeres, gente no blanca, jóvenes, gente mayor, inmigrantes, gente indígena, gente queer, y gente pobre y trabajadora. ¡Únase a un esfuerzo comunitario que va evolucionando y desplegándose más con cada año que pasa!

For decades, Fuerza Unida has participated in the planning of this march, annually scheduled for the closest Saturday to March 8th. Organizations that have also maintained the tradition of this march and continue to actively support these efforts, plus groups that, in recent years, have joined the work include, P.E.A.C.E Initiative, Martinez Street Women’s Center, Domésticas en Acción, UNITE HERE!, Southwest Workers Union, Domésticas Unidas and more.

San Antonio Women Host Community Forum

The San Antonio International Woman’s Day March Planning Group will hold a Press Conference on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 3pm, on the steps of City Hall to present the Community’s Experience of the City Address. The address will include reports and information from mujeres at the forefront of the issues that most impact our San Antonio communities. 
 
We are educators, entrepreneurs, workers, engineers, artists, mothers, experts, queer people, young leaders and learners, elder mentors and students and much more! As all eyes are on our city to influence state and u.s. policy, we, the women, mujeres of San Antonio, proudly assume the responsibility of informing our local and state government leaders of both the challenges we confront daily and the successes we realize every day in our homes, in our places of work, throughout our varied experiences in our communities. 
 
The SA International Woman’s Day March & Rally (SA IWD) Planning Group invites gente, individuals, and groups and organizations of San Antonio to participate in our Community’s Experience of the City Address by briefly sharing their knowledge and experiences in a Community Forum following our address. The Mayor, City Council members, City Manager and their staff and government officials are invited to attend and take note of the comments made by the community they are charged with representing and advocating for. 
 
We also ask the media for their support in reporting on the Community’s Experience of the City Address in order to continue and further encourage the exchange of community perspectives on this day (TUES FEB 26) and at the upcoming San Antonio International Woman’s Day March & Rally to be held on Saturday, March 9, 2013, beginning at 10am at Dignowity Park in San Antonio’s Eastside.
