Welcome to The Bloom, a global social justice resource!
Enjoy our small seeds of joy with an intersectional feminist lens. 

Dear friends, 

Before we dive into the newsletter this week, a quick note to say HELLO to all the new faces in The Bloom!!! There are now almost 1,500 of us reading the newsletter every week from all over the world (hi to Dani in France, Yasmine in Turkey, Mary Kavita in India, and Carolina in Brazil❤️). If I could add a sound effect to this edition you bet I would – some sort of mix of applause...shock...cheer...a deep sigh of pure awe.  This newsletter is a labour of so much love every week, and it means the world to know that what we're doing is really helping you find positive and meaningful pushes in new directions. The Bloom will undergo some incredible changes soon, and we thank you for your patience as we continue blooming into our best selves. 

with love & light,

Sex workers at the frontlines – a dialogue across borders: Although sex worker groups operate on shoestring budgets, they provide crucial services that fill gaps in governments' responses to the crisis. Learn how they're responding to the crisis, along with the most recent data collected by the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in EU. ➞ Register

Teenager helps Polish women flee abuse with fake cosmetics website: Krysia Paszko, a 17-year-old high school student, created a Facebook page at the start of the pandemic for a fake cosmetics company that has now helped hundreds flee domestic violence. Since then, psychologists, lawyers, and volunteers, have joined Paszko to support the flood of requests. ➞ Full Story

29 March Heather McGhee’s specialty is the US' economy—and why it so often fails the American public. From the financial crisis to rising student debt, she finds a common root problem: racism. It is the common denominator of the core dysfunction of US democracy. But how did this happen? And is there a way out? McGhee answers these questions and more in her book launch The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together. Fun fact: McGhee chairs the board of Color of Change, USA's largest online racial justice organization – and we've actually found a great job opportunity with them for you this week ;)  

7 April In recent years attacks on sexual and reproductive health rights have been growing with the number of actors fighting to undo the international achievements for womens’ and sexual minority rights. "Understanding sexual and reproductive health rights in a transatlantic context" asks: How can existing national and international human rights legislation be protected? How can a feminist foreign policy contribute to the protection and expansion of these rights?

"The development sector is fixated on the written word. We are inundated by a constant flow of reports, research papers, figures: ‘the literature’. Behind every new buzzword and piece of jargon is a faith that to change words is to change the world. But committing to decolonizing our ideas begins with making knowledge accessible, plural, collaborative. It means constantly opening up to diverse formats as well. We need artists like never before to help us reflect, creatively reimagine and bring to life a vision for radically better futures."

A Colombian collage artist and Spanish multimedia journalist came together to create a Virtual Gallery for Shifting Power to tell story of ‘development’, from its origin to its current challenge, from its contradictions to its possible horizons. Their guiding principles were the twin notions of decolonization and intersectionality: moving away from the unequal power structures that reinforce legacies of colonialism, and advancing explicitly anti-racist and feminist agendas.
