Save the Casa Internazionale delle Donne in Rome from eviction

This petition had 1,701 supporters

The Casa Internazionale delle Donne (Women's Building), a crucial venue in the City of Rome and a resource for all women, today is at risk of being evicted by Comune di Roma (the Municipality of Rome, owner of the building complex).  For more than thirty years, this unique and self-managed place has been a vibrant meeting point for Italian and foreign women and for international feminism. It is held in high esteem and cherished nationally and internationally for the social and cultural services that it delivers, as well as for its ability to promote and foster the empowerment of women. All this work stems from the commitment, unpaid work and daily engagement of hundreds of women and dozens of associations. The accumulated debt that the City Government imputes to the Women's Building is not balanced by a consideration of the value of services rendered to women in Italy and throughout the world. It is important to ask to the City Government and to the Mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi to withdraw the eviction, cancel debt and allow the Women's Building to survive and help women.
