The theme for this year is ONE: Mind, Body, Spirit This year's theme honors the statement and prayer said to close rounds in Indigenous ceremonies. It is a phrase and call for the 7 generations, reminding us that we are all one though from different directions, cultures and communities. This theme can speak to women's spirituality, interconnectedness with nature and all beings as well as that which is being threatened. In addition, it calls us to remember and live our lives in balance with our body, mind and spirit, to care for communities, our families and ourselves. There are many attacks on women's lives, reproductive rights and stability: from laws made to control our bodies to high incarceration rates and feminicide. All of this can be seen as an attack on our body, mind and spirit. Still with a belief that everything is connected and that we are all one, we know things can change. It only takes ONE to make a difference.
