IMMA Post – Zuflichtstelle’s 30th Birthday

On Thursday, October 25 the Zufluchtstelle celebrated it's 30th birthday at Import/Export . There were multiple speeches from various politicians and pioneers in the field of women's rights. A very interesting fact, that perhaps not everyone is aware of, our shelter is the only one in Germany, which is completely anonymous and where no males are allowed to set foot into (still 30 years after its founding).

In the pictures you see the previous and current management (Carmen & Chrisiane) as well as the entire team of social workers, psychologists who work 24/7 365. The girls weren't in attendance but many of the activities, including those of the AAUPW were shown on display.

Oktoberfest with IMMA

An afternoon in the life of Claudia and Grace

This year AAUPW members Grace and Claudia joined Tina and 7 IMMA girls (and we know for sure there were seven - for we counted a hundred times!) for a 2 hour trip to the Wiesn. 

Upon arrival Tina immediately took the group to the Police, First Aid and Sichere Wiesn station. She talked about the different situations that could lead to a need for any of these services.
Then the fun began.  The girls all got to choose what rides to go on and their choices varied - including the 80 meter high tower with a drop. Plus, we played some games and bought some food. In the end, even the girls who were reluctant to go at first had a good time!

Sichere Wiesn Action – September 21st

Sichere Wiesen - a safer Octoberfest for girls and women!

Sichere Wiesen offers a safe haven at Octoberfest for girls and women from around the world.  Please help us to support it!

When: Friday, September 21st, 6 p.m., near Hauptbahnhof

Oktoberfest time is rolling around soon, and that means it’s time for the Sichere Wiesn action. Our job is to pass out flyers to local hotels and hostels just in time for Oktoberfest, so that female guests know about it. As usual, we’ll split up into small groups with Sichere Wiesn staff and distribute flyers to hotels in the city center.

For those of you who are new to AAUPW -- our club supports this valuable non-profit organization which provides a security point at the Oktoberfest grounds for women and girls who need help.  Please volunteer to help. It just takes a little more than an hour. See the Evite for more details and to sign up.

Thank you!
Kate Rodriguez
Sichere Wiesn Coordinator

Sewing with IMMA in May

Zipping along

On  Thursday,  May  3rd  AAUPW Member Claudia Ziersch journeyed to the IMMA Safehouse once again to complete a sewing project with the girls. "I  had recently been given a huge box of zippers, which enabled me to sew  zippered  bags  with the girls.  They could choose the size they wanted  to  make  -  coin purse or cosmetic bag - and the fabric they wanted  to  use. As usual, there was some grumbling, but at the end I had a hard time convincing them to give me the bags so I could take a picture!"

Here the results:
Again, special thanks to Claudia for continuing to keep us updated on her work with the girls at IMMA!
