RVSP now!

Our PJALS community includes many relationships in the Seattle area. As part of our commitment to strengthening relationships for long-term transformational organizing to build collective power and dismantle structural oppression, we are coming to Seattle in July!

We invite you to join us for a party in the beautiful TASWIRA Gallery for Seattle-area members, partners, and new friends. Hors d’oeuvres, wine, and non-alcoholic sparkling beverages will be served as we share what we have been doing and why Spokane-area organizing is vital to statewide progressive wins. We’d love to get to know you better!

TASWIRA, which means “vision” in Swahili, stands for Transformative Action for Sustainable Women’s Initiatives & Resources in Africa. Established by Avery Barnes in 2019, TASWIRA is a versatile and eclectic space located in Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square that functions as a Cultural Art gallery, retail store, and event space. Following her first experience volunteering at the Bamburi Women’s Empowerment Center (BWEC) in Kenya, Avery founded the organization as a way to support the female artisans at the center who handcrafted TASWIRA’s unique line of Afrocentric streetwear, accessories, handwoven home goods, and other retail products.

There is no cost to attend, but there will be an opportunity to give should you be moved by the work of our PJALS community.

If you are in the Seattle area and would either like to attend as an individual or join our Host Committee, please RSVP here .
