2nd National Call for women of color in leadership for a moment of debrief and exhale from a
Inspired by our first call… with over 80 registrants on Feb 7th, women of color from all over the US got together to exhale, to share, to hear and to see each other in a world deeming them invisible. With such an amazing energy, there was no way we could walk away without thinking about what’s next and how we can stay connected over the next couple of months. The need for women of color to convene and share resources and energy is needed now more than ever.
Our first call was dedicated to a state of emergency that the new administration has created in our nation and specifically in the lives of people of color all around the world. This call is dedicated to the STATE of WTF…from immigration raids to victims of domestic violence being deported, families torn apart, and still the impending cuts on well everything, fear still creeps into our beds at night and wakes us up in the morning as we do not know what our communities will be facing the next day.
Are you an executive director, a service provider, activist, organizer, advocate, healer, consultant, social worker ? Are you a women of color in a position of leadership serving immigrants, women and girls, incarcerated and LGBT and are feeling the impact by the political climate? Are you being impacted by the possible cuts in Obama Care, Violence against Women Act? Are you fearful for yourself, family and community because of the immigration raids and the ban on immigrants? Are you a refugee, immigrant, sexual assault and war survivor being triggered by what’s happening?

Dayanara will be sharing her knowledge with participants at the upcoming 2016 Enhancing Capacity Seminar presented by The National Organization of Sisters of Color Ending Sexual Assault (SCESA) in partnership with the U. S. Department of Justice – Office on Violence Against Women.

The Enhancing Capacity Seminar, “Culturally Specific Services Addressing Sexual Assault”, will be held Monday, June 6th – Friday, June 10th, 2016 in San Diego, California. The purpose of the Enhancing Capacity Seminar on “Culturally Specific Services Addressing Sexual Assault” is to enhance the capacity of Communities of Color organizations to provide culturally specific services addressing sexual assault. The Capacity Seminar will provide intensive skills based training and information on how to engage in culturally specific program planning and implementation strategies (particularly services and outreach) that reflect the occurrence and complexity of sexual assault in Communities of Color.

Dayanara will facilitate Dealing with Vicarious Trauma –  She will explore secondary trauma of advocates as well as self-care methods and resources.

May -June 2016 Dayanara Marte Associate Artists @ Body Ecology Spring Intensive

You are invited to join me at the culminating ritual on June 18 at 7 pm at Hi-Arts: A New Home for Hip Hop Arts and Urban Culture.

body ecology2“I am art, I am creativity! My life, this life, is a performance where I have taken on many identities, roles and characters that have impacted me. However, I understand that non are who I am. There is a difference between who I am and what I do . I am a spiritual cultural worker on this human earth doing the goddesses job. With all the violence happening you have to be really creative in how you show up under the circumstances it puts you in. As a human rights activist, in my practice I use my ancestors healing tools to reclaim the creativity of the mind, body and spirit of women and girls from poverty, neglect, oppression and violence. When our health is absent the creativity that we are and our body as art form cannot manifest.” Dayanara Marte

Congrats to me! This spring I have been accepted to The Body Ecology Womanist Performance Intensive as an associate artist and I will be liberating my body as I use it in action and service of my heart. Thank you Ebony Noelle Golden founder of Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative and the Body Ecology crew and other accepted associate artists. I will be healing and creating with ten dynamic Associate Artists who span a range of practices, experience, and expertise in healing, performance, organizing, and education. They join BDAC from all over New York City, Boston, and Washington, DC. I am excited to be a part of the Body Ecology family.

NYC  Healer @ Black Women’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission on Sexual Assault

On Thursday the first Black Women’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission will convene in New York City. Intergenerational survivors will speak about their experiences and we will collectively interrogate the history of accepted sexual violence against Black women in America.
 View the Public Program: http://bit.ly/201FrB9.
For centuries, the rape and terrorization of Black women’s bodies was legal for the generation of wealth and labor. We hold these atrocities in our folklore, cellular memory, and spirits. Our bones are oh so tired of waiting for someone to enact justice on our behalf and on behalf of our ancestors.
We are ready to take action. The Black Women’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission, is visioning justice and calling for it ourselves.
 “We are the ones we have been waiting for and no one else is coming.”
‪#‎BelieveBlackWomen‬ ‪#‎VisioningJustice‬

CALL TO ACTION: TOMORROW WE NEED healers from 9-1 and 1-5 to be a container and a witness and to hold the directions. Call or Text DEE 9143571430 if you can come through! If you cant physically make it you can hold space, send reiki, be in prayers and light a candle from where ever you are at! Post a picture, send us an affirmation or create a video and let us know how you supporting from where you are at? Help us set an intention for women and girls and generations of Truth Telling and undoing the LIES that the tell us!
