RECENT EVENTS

2021 WILD Summer Institute

PAST EVENTS

WILD in the Winter, 2021

 On March 13, some 50-plus women took part in our WILD in the Winter program, "You Can't Pour from an Empty Cup: Keeping Ourselves and Others Healthy”. They came from all over Massachusetts and from nine other states. Thanks to Zoom, we were able to share our program with people as far away as the West Coast. They were caregivers, utility workers, teachers, healthcare workers and more, from a variety of unions, workers’ centers and community organizations.

At a time when many of us were feeling worn out and beaten up by everything going on around us—the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the other epidemic of violence against African Americans and other People of Color in this country – the self-care theme resonated deeply with many women. Taking our cue from the words of Audre Lord,  “Caring for myself is not an act of self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare”, we put together a day of informative workshops, animated discussion and fun.

The morning began with a moving talk from Boston City Councilor Lydia Edwards. Councilor Edwards is herself a WILD alum, and thus knew her audience well. You can see her remarks here.

Her talk was followed by 2 workshops, each of them conducted bilingually. One was on “Constructing Self Care”, and was led by Milagros Barreto of MassCOSH. The other was “Refilling our Cups: How do we address our burnout individually and collectively?” facilitated by Melissa Markstrom  from SHARE-AFSCME and Prachi Goyal from the Pioneer Valley Worker Center. PowerPoint slides of the 2 workshops can be downloaded using the links above. At this time, they are available in English only.

 After a short break, we reconvened in small groups for discussions of the tactics and practices we use to take care of ourselves, and the steps we can take to take care of our communities during these hard times.

The day ended with a rousing zoom “party”.


 

2020 WILD Summer Institute

WILD held out first ever online Summer Institute on June 27. The theme was "Women taking charge during the pandemic: We will survive!, and workshop topics focused on issues that women are facing because of the COVID epidemic. It was a great success. Read more about it on the Summer Institute 2020 page.

WILD "Thank you" Meet and Greet: October 29, 5:30-8:30 at the WILD office. Women and a few men from the WILD community came together on the evening of October 29 and shared a delicious meal, and speeches. Several WILD participants gave moving testimony about the way the Summer Institute has impacted their lives.
