OVARIAN PSYCOS ON ETSY!!!

ATTN ALL riders or not:

In SOLIDARITY with workers here in LA and around the world Comida No Bombas and The Ovarian Psycos will be riding from East Los Angeles Community College to the protest in #DTLA 

Please do not buy anything!!! In efforts of reclaiming our spaces, voices, and rights we must show this city who really has the power. May Day in LA has been recorded to be one of the biggest protests in her/history but our school’s Eurocentric txt books STILL do not share with our children and scholars how people of color and the working class community have broken this record! We are still voiceless. We are a huge part of her/history! Let us not depend on books and numbers to show our kids NOW, how WE stand up for our FUTURE!

Come and join Las Ovarian Psyco-Cycles for a space fundraiser and watch the film “Wadjda”. Wadjda is a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Although she lives in a conservative world, Wadjda is fun-loving, entrepreneurial and always pushing the boundaries of what she can get away with. After a fight with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldn’t be playing with, Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale. She wants the bicycle desperately so that she can beat Abdullah in a race. But Wadjda’s mother won’t allow it, fearing repercussions from a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl’s virtue. So Wadjda decides to try and raise the money herself.

———————
Meet up Location: Coyolxauhqui Stone ( Miller & City Terrace Dr. Los Angeles 90032)

Meet up time: 7pm

Ride out: 7:30pm 

Destination: Centro de Comunicación Comunitaria (1214 e. 1st st Boyle Heights, 90033)
———————–
This workshop presents a sacred moment for you to connect with your body and to Coatlicue (our mother earth). The earth gives us life, in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the medicine we take. It is essential when taking from the earth we do it only with respect and always give something back. That could be in the seeds we plant or the water we give to nourish the earth, also creating a relationship with the plants they will soon enough begin to communicate what they need. We come from the earth and keeping a connection is essential in creating a healthy way of living, physically and spiritually.
I will inform you on 3 herbs that can nourish your body. My intention is to inspire the idea of bringing herbs back into our daily routine while taking a moment to connect with our bodies using herbal medicine as our ancestors did. These 3 herbs focus on our center energy as womyn and we will take this moment to share our stories in a safe & sacred space. We will discuss any concerns or ask any questions we might have regarding our wombs along with other healing exercises. I hope with sharing my knowledge you will then feel empowered and create a better relationship with yourself and the earth.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS RIDE IS FOR WOMYN, WOMYN IDENTIFIED, QUEER, TWO-SPIRITED, TRANS, GENDER NON CONFORMING INDIVIDUALS!!!!!
