Feminist Friday: Volunteers Needed for Rethinking Power & Resistance/Re-imaginando el Poder y la Resistencia

Rethinking Power & Resistance: Gender & Human Rights from Texas to the Transnational is a conference that will be held October 5th-6th in Austin, Texas. The bilingual event brings scholars and activists together for discussion, organization, and collaboration. The conference is currently in need of volunteers in the following areas:

1) English/Spanish translators/interpreters

Are you fluent in both English and Spanish? Do you have any experience with simultaneous translation? We need folks for the following translation collaborations:
A. Simultaneous translation to headsets during panels and events
B. Individual translation for folks networking
C. Individual translation for organizing issues during the conference
We are looking to staff folks on shifts during Friday and Saturday, October 5 and 6, 2012.
If you are interested in getting involved with activist translation, please email Andrea Zarate at a.zarate@utexas.edu to let us know which of these pieces you would be interested in and prepared for.

2) Housing and transportation for conference participants

The conference organizers are looking for volunteer housing and transportation to and from the airport for a number of the conference participants over October 4-7.
If you are able to host and/or offer transportation for one or more guests for the weekend of October 5 and 6, please email Rocío Villalobos at rocio.villalobos@gmail.com.
3) Staffing for the days of the conference
Volunteers are needed to assist in conference registration, session set-up, and helping to answer general questions for conference participants. We are seeking volunteers for shifts on both Friday, October 5 and Saturday, October 6.
