  1. Hi — I’m an indie social justice documentary filmmaker visiting from Albuquerque to do some interviews in NY for my film on the use of sexual violence as a political weapon and what different communities are doing to heal and organize politically. (I’ll put a couple links below to my previous work.) I’m going to attend as much of this as possible, but I have an interview scheduled at 2 in Brooklyn with Silvia Federici and won’t be there for the entire day, including the panel on Women’s Liberation.

    I’m a friend of the late Joel Olson and was introduced to Race Traitor through him, and my partner and I subscribe to Hard Crackers — my point is I’m very interested in a Feminist perspective on sexual violence through a communist lens and especially of one related to Race Traitor-type politics. I’d love to interview a couple of people that will be presenting on the Women’s Liberation panel, or other members/presenters that work on issues focusing on feminism from a perspective that substantially takes into account race and capitalism.

    If you get this before tomorrow/Sunday and could pass on the email addresses of related presenters/members/attendees that might be willing to talk with me so I could make sure to meet them, I would be very grateful!

    Thank you —
    Katie Curran
