Happy JASS Day! In 2014, Santa Fe, New Mexico declared October 18 at day of celebration and solidarity with women human rights defenders fighting for land, water, and territories. JASS Executive Director Lisa VeneKlasen writes about how growing up in Santa Fe influenced her politics and her feminism in this letter of appreciation to our growing Santa Fe community.

I cannot believe I almost gave up on coming to Cape Town for the 11th AWID Forum. I was on the verge of giving up as I had hassles trying to get the South African visa - every time I go to apply for a visa (twice a year), there are always new rules. Anyway, I am happy to be connecting with feminists and getting affirmation that feminism is the way to go in my work and my life.

Tiwonge at AWIDFrom AWID, I have learnt on how to strengthen women's organisations and to bring solidality on womens movement in our regions and our countries and documentation is important. To make sure that we are  achieving the MDG3 is when we as women we realise our rights, we exercise them and they are fullfied. It's we women who can make things to change by dismantling patriachal systems which are oppressing women. Create a space for women.

As I look forward to the opening of the AWID forum , I am quite excited about the work that the young feminist have planned for the conference.It pleases me to know that space has been opened up for young feminists within the forum and I hope their visibility will make an impact. One of the young feminists today said, "If you want to go fast, walk alone but if you want to go far, walk with others."

The meeting was explosive with different ideas from diverse women across the globe. It was an enriching and eye opening experience. It also challenged me as a woman and as an activist to do more for the women's cause.
