Embodied Inequalities Event

On March 8, 2021, IRRPP held an event in celebration of International Women’s Day to honor the often invisible mothering and caretaking labor that has been essential to Chicago-based movements for racial justice over the years. Our keynote speaker, Paula X. Rojas led us in honoring collectives that have been at the forefront of care-work within Chicago’s movements seeking to dismantle the prison industrial complex and undocumented, Palestinian, and American Indian movements. Elected officials also commented on the policy implications of these issues.
