Vaccine Justice: How can feminists collectively organise to hold States accountable?

Join feminists from around the world, in a teach-in & a strategy session, to explore the many ways transnational corporations, philanthrocapitalism and the vaccine nationalism of Northern States are interfering with public decision-making to prioritise corporate interests over public interests in our world today - and how feminists take collective action for health, rights, and justice.

Vaccine Justice Feminist Strategy Session 

In a follow-up strategy session, we will explore possible avenues of resistance to corporate capture of health and how we can mobilise collective solidarity to hold states accountable and pursue vaccine justice.

In interactive small groups, we will exchange on our local contexts and develop collective messages and collective actions we can undertake 

These sessions are part of a series of conversations for a #FeministBailout and Economic Recovery plan that centers health and wellbeing of our communities and the planet. Both sessions will have simultaneous interpretation to English, Spanish and French; the Teach-In will have Closed Captioning in English available.
