A friend just forwarded this message from Beth Garriott of the Institute of International Education:

The TechWomen program, managed by the Institute of International Education and funded by the Department of State, is currently looking for women living in the Bay Area who are passionate about Africa to get involved as Cultural Mentors for our program in October. I’ve included more details below and a flyer attached… The application deadline is August 1st.

Here’s the flyer.

LOL on the radio!

I (Jen-Mei) was recently interviewed for a show on integrating healing into queer activism on KPFA’s Women’s Magazine that was originally broadcast on Pride Sunday. I talked a bit about the space, intersectionality, taking time to build stuff on our own schedule instead of as a reaction to stupid mean stuff someone else is doing, and some of our upcoming events such as our AMC 2013 report back on Saturday, July 20 (2 PM to 6 PM).
