El Instituto invites you to a talk by Zoan Dávila Roldán and Shariana Ferrer‐Núñez, of La Colectiva Feminista en Construcción, Thursday, 15 October 2020, 1‐3PM.

La Colectiva Feminista en Construcción is a grassroots feminist movement that brings together the student, anti‐ colonialism and LGBTTIQ struggle to oppose the racist and patriarchal colonial system and work towards achieving structural change. They are building a grassroots feminist movement which recognizes that the different manifestations of oppression (including sexism, cis‐sexism machismo, racism, xenophobia, and capitalism) are interrelated and need to be opposed collectively. Their political project comes from the tradition of Black feminism, articulating the fight against hetero‐patriarchy, anti‐Black violence, and capitalism.

Zoan Tanís Dávila Roldán is a Black feminist activist and lawyer from Puerto Rico, member and spokesperson of La Colectiva. An activist lawyer, Zoán has represented protesters affected by state and police repression, impoverished communities at risk of displacement and advocacy initiatives defending civil rights.

Shariana Ferrer‐Núñez is a Black queer feminist Puerto Rican activist, scholar and organizer, co‐founder of La Colectiva. Her political practice centers intersectionality as the forefront for dismantling systems of oppression and building movements for social justice through collective and popular power.
