22 Years of San Antonio’s Woman’s Day March!
 
Second by Suzy GonzalezThe 22nd Annual San Antonio International Woman’s Day March (SA IWD) will be held this Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 10am in downtown San Antonio.  All are invited to take to the streets and march from the Grand Hyatt (at Market & Bowie St.) to the Plaza del Zacate (milam Park). 
 
This year, the planning group took a look back at what we’ve learned over the last 22 years and to reflect on what we envision for our community’s future.  Our recommitment to the struggle for social justice includes renewed efforts to connect with our community’s youth and to work together to learn from and teach each other.  We acknowledge that women are at the forefront of social justice movements in San Antonio and throughout the world.  We reclaim our roles in working towards una vida digna/a life with dignity for all people in our communities.  The image shown above, called Second, created by Suzy Gonzalez, was selected by the SA IWD planning group to represent our enduring vision and this year’s theme: 

Women Leading the Rebirth; ¡Mujeres al frente del Renacimiento!
 
A rally will be held as marchers enter the Plaza del Zacate.  Many consider the plaza sacred ground for honoring our community’s legacy of women organizers from Emma Teneyuca, to the young girls of Martinez St. Women’s Center, who will march with a mobile mural they have created.  Patricia Castillo of P.E.A.C.E. Initiative, a long time activist against violence against women, will co-MC the rally with 19 year-old film maker and artista, Jessica Torres.  The Domestic Workers Union will speak on the invisibility of domestic workers and how their unfair treatment is further burdened with additional work as unpaid home health care providers.  The planning group, made up of individual mujeres and supporting organizations, aims to keep children engaged in the Rally too!  Child-centered and intergenerational activities will be available for all to participate in.  A special musical collaboration between the great accordionista, Eva Ybarra and Suzy Bravo (The Soul Revue) will keep everyone in the Plaza… and dancing!   For info call, (210)326-9809, (210) 262.0654 or visit www.sawomenwillmarch.org.  (click to read IWD Vision Statement & 2012 Image Statement)
