As I end the day, I would like to share my thoughts on the process on Planning for the Southern African Region.It has been an interesting process to be involved in, its shaping and defining Jass Southern africa as an organisation. It enables us to organise thoughts and plan for actions on movement building in the region through a process of reflection about what we've done as Jass southern africa in the past six moinths and where we going in the region. We have been able to come up with a great vision/goals of what we would like to see or achieve in the next 3years which is exciting and empowering as a JASS Movement Builder. I look forward to the next steps , which is linked to systems, structures and roles that will assist our implementation plans for the next year. Its also been a difficult process, but its been good. I've had fun.

JASS was thrilled to play a significant role in conceptualizing, planning, and facilitating the Nobel Women's Initiative's international conference entitled Women Redefining Democracy for Peace, Justice and Equality that was held in Antigua, Guatemala from May 10-12, 2009. More than 100 women from around the world, including four women Laureates, gathered to examine the challenges of democratization, and to reshape democracy through the lens of women's experiences. The JASS community was represented by more than twenty women, including our allies Petateras and Feminist International Radio Endeavour (FIRE), who participated in the three day strategy meeting by speaking on panels, acting as moderators, and documenting the conference.

Addtionally, Lisa VeneKlasen, JASS Executive Director, collaborated with Alda Facio, a JASS Mesoamerica regional advisor, in authoring the concept statement of the conference. And the Declaration of the Nobel Women’s Initiative Conference on Women Redefining Democracy for Peace, Justice and Equality, was drafted by two JASS board members, Malena de Montis and Srilatha Batliwala, based on input from the participants. The declaration is available in Spanish as well.
