"We are all sisters under the Flesh"

Manxs Americanxs is a gathering group of Latinx women and non-binary participants living in New York, working on issues of culture, immigration, identity, social justice and art. Since 2018 we have been making space to be in circle and bend time to be together to caring and nourishing each other.
Manas brings together Puerto Rico, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Panama, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Colombia, New York and Miami and weave the complicated, beautiful and contradictory stories that connect us, (her)Manas of the Americas.
The group was created during the residency at AnnexB, New York (summer 2018): https://www.annexb.net/talk-latinx-women-gather-in-nyc
