Power point presentation highlighting how far JASS has come since 2010. What has JASS learned as organization? What has happened by the 3 regions? What are the goals for the future?
A presentation of JASS' progress since 2006 and strategies moving forward. The presentation highlights themes such as JASS' community, relationships, reputation, and power.
The JASS community is steeped in a particularly political way of learning, analyzing, and taking action. From the beginning, this approach – feminist popular education – has shaped JASS’ vision and strategies. In 2011, JASS undertook a series of activities that highlighted what this approach has meant to the work. Drawing on the thinking and experience of many pioneering popular educators within the network, JASS set out to better understand and define how feminist popular education shapes our movement-building in different contexts.
