In the fall of 2016, three LeftRoots cadres — Alex Deane, Paige Amanda Kumm, and Ying-sun Ho —got to spend seven weeks studying at the Escola Nacional Florestan Fernandes (ENFF), the national school of Brazil’s Movement of Landless Peasants (MST—Movimento dos Trabalhadores Sem Terra). On April 6, 2017, the three of them hosted a national LeftRoots hangOut to talk about their experience.[1]

LeftRoots to Brazil

Support LeftRoots comrades to attend the international school of Transnational Decolonial Black Feminism in the Americas to be held in Cachoeira, Bahia, Brazil from July 29 to August 2, 2019.

With some support from LeftRoots, 7 cadres will be traveling to Bahia, Brazil to learn and engage with Black Feminists from across the Americas and the globe to deepen our feminist socialist praxis. We are raising $10,000 by April 19 to go toward airfare and other travel costs in order to attend the program.


Black women are a driving force in the movement for social and economic justice in Brazil, even as far-right president Bolsonaro pushes a racist and homophobic agenda centered on militarization and privatization. We continue to mourn the brutal assassination of activist and politician Marielle Franco and honor her legacy and call to resist. We see the Decolonial Black Feminism school as an opportunity to practice internationalism and learn from Black feminists across the diaspora.[2]

Delegates included Vanessa Moses, Brianna Gibson, Jayanni Webster, Lisa Husniyyah Owens, Sian Miranda Singh OFaolain IV, Paige Amanda Kumm.
