ELVET - Architectures and Archetypes

(Alex Apt)

he texture of a body's architecture 
The stature of a statue
The posture of too high standing pillars
Too tall to hold 
Buildings Built On Buildings 
Too Bold To Console 
 As Bold As Blood

BLACK VELVET - Architectures and Archetypes is an original multidisciplinary performance art work created and premiered by Shamel Pitts, Mirelle Martins and Lucca del Carlo in São Paulo, Nov/2016.

 BLACK VELVET is a celebration of the many textures, beauty, delicacy, and strength within us. It Is an art piece that aims to share and reflect on the colorfulness of blackness -especially in regards to black women- in a relationship of love, compassion and camaraderie.

(Alex Apt)
This work researches and shares the sensibility of ideals, models and textures as a projection of self. The dealing within these structures of systems is to discover what is inside of us, between us and around us. To hopefully bridge the distances so that we can see and meet each other. Some systems must be broken, re imagined, in order to reconstruct.

Organizing for Action

The critical fights that we're immersed in today -- those for racial, gender, and labor equality -- are rooted in struggles from decades ago.

With recent events, I have to admit to feeling that perhaps we aren't making progress on these crucial issues, and in fact we might be going backwards. And that's when I know I need to find inspiration from the great community activists who have come before us.

One such organizing giant is Dolores Huerta, who worked tirelessly for justice and became one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century.

She's the subject of Dolores, a new documentary that tells the story of Huerta's pivotal work as an equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers' union with Cesar Chavez, and explores why her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized until now.

The IFC Center in New York City will be screening Dolores starting this weekend -- running through September 7 -- take a look at the schedule, and see if you can attend.

This film offers an intimate and unprecedented access to Huerta, and reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one's life to fighting for social change -- which, at 87, she continues fighting to this day.

I hope you will be able to attend this screening, and become as inspired as I am by Dolores Huerta -- a rebel. Activist. Feminist. Mother.

See if you can attend a screening:

Organizing for Action

On Friday, August 25, 2017, the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced that the president issued an executive order titled “Imposing Additional Sanctions with Respect to the Situation in Venezuela,” which essentially prohibits United States persons from engaging in transactions related to most new and existing debt, and new equity, of the government of Venezuela. However, engaging in transactions related to equity of the government of Venezuela is generally permissible if the equity was issued prior to the effective date of the executive order, and provided that no United States person purchase securities from the government of Venezuela.

Organizing for Action

Today is Women's Equality Day -- the 97th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote.

While this is a chance for us to reflect on and celebrate the hard work that made that milestone possible, it's important to acknowledge how far we still have to go to ensure true equality for all women.

We've come a long way -- but there's still work to do. Even at the time of its passage, the 19th amendment left out many women of color. And today, there are still many areas in which women are not truly treated equally.

On average, full-time working women are still earning less than their male counterparts, and that gap is even wider when race and ethnicity are taken into account. Too many women face barriers while trying to access reproductive health care. Just last month, congressional leaders pushed for an Obamacare repeal bill that would have slashed Medicaid and defunded Planned Parenthood, making it significantly more difficult and costly for millions of women to access critical health care services.

That's why it's crucial that we keep working -- that we keep defending Obamacare, pushing for equal pay for equal work, and making sure that no mom (or dad) has to decide between collecting a paycheck and caring for a sick family member.

If you're ready to get involved in these fights, take the first step by finding your local OFA chapter.

This administration is going to keep threatening our progress. We can't give up our fight for a fair country where women are respected and treated equally.

So today, recommit to continuing the fight for equality.
