The following represents what was submitted to and accepted by the Province of British Columbia on June 7th, 2019.
The Pacific Intersectional Feminism Society (PIFS) is an ever revolving and evolving group of folx from all over the world who are connecting in Vancouver, BC. Despairing at the oppression and injustices we were witnessing everyday, PIFS grouped together to support each other to take actionable steps towards destroying oppressive systems such as sexism, racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, environmental destruction and the ongoing effects of colonialism.
We work to promote safe spaces that invoke progressive action through social change, democratic means, and by elevating voices. We came together with feelings of helplessness, frustration and grief. Our individual past experiences and the witnessing of injustices around us catalysed our resolve. We redirect our collective energies to compassion, empathy,and celebration for concrete action.
Our areas of focus are as diverse as we are, and we recognize that it is only with seeking inclusive solutions together that we will create an egalitarian society. Anyone who agrees that no one is free until we are all free is able to join, work with, or work besides PIFS.
