OUR TEAM

We are an INTERGENERATIONAL FEMINIST team. We understand CARE as an everyday practice in our work. We are building collectively, based on dialogue and an exchange of experiences and knowledge. We are connected to the women's and feminist movement in Latin America and its struggles and demands because we recognize the COLLECTIVE AND TRANSFORMATIVE POWER of women.
