The Power to Inherit & The Power to Resist: Lessons from the Motherland -A GABRIELA New York Expo Reportback-

In November 2014, members of GABRIELA New York participated in a Women's International Solidarity Mission in Tacloban during the anniversary of Typhoon Haiyan, followed by an exposure trip to Mindanao to integrate with indigenous communities affected by large-scale mining and militarization. They met and lived with many teachers of community organizing and movement building, including fisherfolk, peasant farmers, mining workers, indigenous youth and tribal leaders.

GABRIELA New York invites you to join us as our exposurists recount these Lessons from the Motherland.

The Capital Campaign


In 2000, WOW launched its first large-scale fundraising effort, a capital campaign to help us buy and renovate our theater. The City of New York has sold the tenants of 59-61 East 4th Street the building for $1!

The caveat: That we raise the funds to renovate the building, and bring it up to code. WOW’s share of renovation costs is about $300,000. As we have survived solely on box-office sales for 25 years, this is more money than we’ve ever had or needed in the past.




When we do succeed in securing these funds, WOW will own its own permanent theater space in a completely renovated building.

One of the most exciting aspects, which we have achieved, is the addition of a functional 24/7 self-service elevator! Yet to come is an ADA approved accessible bathroom, and dare we say air-conditioning?!
We are not there yet! In order to make this possible, we need your financial help! No donation is too small or too large, and any amount will help us ensure that theatre by women and/or by transgender people continues to thrive and be ever-increasingly accessible.


Help WOW continue as an invaluable resource
