JASS’ third annual crossregional gathering assembled 27 close allies, board members and staff from 17 countries for a learning and visioning process about feminist movement-building from local to global levels.
At a pivotal moment in JASS’ young life, as we take our training, organizing, action, advocacy, and knowledge to a new level, we paused to draw lessons on the impact of our approach thus far, seeking specifically:
a shared understanding and fresh insights about the theory and practice of feminist movement-building (contexts, issues, approaches and strategies);
new knowledge about the principles and dilemmas involved in building a flexible transnational institution as an NGO-movement hybrid (JASS); and
further clarity about the theory of change, core principles and political philosophy underpinning JASS’ movement-building.
