Collaborators wanted! Bridges, Nov. 22

Fall greetings! The HerStories Project is gearing up for Bridges, an open mic of spoken and written word at (SCENE) Metrospace (East Lansing, MI) on November 22 at 7:00pm. The date was selected because it links Transgender Day of Remembrance (Nov. 20) and the international campaign 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence (Nov. 25 – Dec. 10).

Bridges is an event that celebrates gender expression with special honor to two-spirit and transgender voices. Bridges also challenges gender violence, in part with the 2011 theme announcement for 16 Days — “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let’s Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women!”

Bridges is looking for event partners!
Collaborators so far include the Center for Poetry and the Peace Education Center.   A special invitation is extended to groups with two-spirit/ transgender members, as well as two-spirit/ transgender individuals.  I also am looking for a co-organizer to help shape this event to honor two-spirit/ transgender voices. Please email me with interest or questions at herstories.project[at]
