NISGUA's 2022 wall calendar highlights Joy as Resistance - a declaration that by celebrating victories and seeking joy on the path towards liberation, our movements will thrive. It is in the surprise of disruptive laughter and in the taking care of our comrades, that our oppressors will stand aside. We are forever grateful for the conversations over coffee, hands held in protest, and breathtaking moments of beauty shared with those we accompany.

Joy as Resistance

On December 6, the NISGUA community gathered for "Joy as Resistance: Trans-territorial organizing amidst global crisis," a beautiful evening of poetry, music, and speeches by our partners. We heard from poets and organizers who shared how they've been organizing across colonially imposed borders and in the midst of a global pandemic.
