Feminist Emergency Service: urgent grant for anti-burnout workshops for the collective
About the group
We believe that feminism is for everyone. According to Angela Davis – “we have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world”.
Manifa Bydgoszcz is a feminist collective that has existed for over three years. It operates in a non-hierarchical manner, also cooperating with local queer groups, climate strike, and other social movements. She organizes manifas and marches for the day of women’s rights on 8 March, author’s meetings, workshops. The group was very heavily involved in women’s strikes in Bydgoszcz, i.e. protests against the tightening of anti-abortion law.
About the action
This workshop will give us the strength to fight. Thanks to taking care of the group, we will be able to effectively resist, better that longer than we have before.
After very intense and exhaustive activity in 2020 and 2021, the collective needs support to prevent activist burnout and, together, under the guidance of an experienced facilitator, to look at this experience. The grant from the Feminist Emergency Service will be used to organize anti-burnout workshops for members of the collective.
Grant amount: PLN 2400
