2021 marked 10 years since RESURJ’s first advocacy activity at the 44th Commission on Population and Development, after RESURJ’s founding in 2010. While we continued to grapple with the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, unable to meet in person to mark this important milestone in south feminist organising, we felt the need to reconnect with friends and allies who made RESURJ possible.
It has been a long journey filled with resilience, resistance, community care, reflection and action and we can’t thank you enough for being a part of it.
As a part of the celebration, we hosted a Feminist Community of Care (FemCom), bringing together all those who have been part of this important journey.
Through this FemCom, we reflected on our journey so far through the words of our current and former members, allies and accomplices, and explored our hopes and wishes for the next steps of RESURJ in furthering sexual and reproductive justice.
We shared our vision of a feminist future, of what it means for a collective to stay connected but also see new planets.
We express our gratitude to everyone who joined us in the celebration, and those who could not but have been an extremely important part of RESURJ’s history and journey.
