As a multiregional organization grounded in the South, JASS’ work is linked by a crossregional team and by crossregional exchanges for learning, communications and advocacy.

Resource

In this booklet, we spotlight JASS' key accomplishments across Mesoamerica, Southern Africa, and Southeast Asia in 2019. This year, women were on the frontlines and in the trenches building and mobilizing new kinds of power to make their voices heard, demand justice, and offer alternatives to the status quo.

Women Crossing the Line

For me, the idea of ‘women crossing the line’ means women pushing forward and continuing to advance progressive women’s rights agenda’s in all corners of the world. It's a collective moving forward, it is a stampede; it is all women finding the strength to claim our power.

JASS' Executive Director's hometown of Santa Fe, New Mexico, signed a proclamation declaring October 18th JASS Day. In celebration, our Santa Fe friends and family—Marg VeneKlasen, Marilyn Bane, Kayle Higinbotham, and Laura Jeffers—hosted the first-ever Women Crossing the Line Symposium and Reception. Lisa, Daysi Flores, and Marusia Lopez addressed a welcoming crowd of more than 50 Santa Fe-ers, eager to support and learn more about JASS’ work to ensure the safety of women activists in Mexico and Central America.
