HATCH, the Mellon-funded Feminist Arts & Science Shop at UC Davis, and The 21st Century Coolies Project hosted a fascinating workshop on 'precarious reproduction.'
First there was a panel featuring the California Domestic Workers Coalition and Sung Yeon Choimorrow, the Executive Director of the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum (NAPAWF). This panel discussed grassroots work with immigrant womxn workers, and activism on reproductive rights and domestic workers rights. This was followed by a roundtablediscussion about issues of precarious labor, social reproduction, migration, militarization, and law.
I drove up from the Bay Area to participate and enjoyed the gorgeously green hills surrounding the California central valley, thanks to persisting rain into early spring.
