#MeToo recently propped up into the spotlight and the numerous accounts of folks outing their abusers whether in Hollywood or in our very own communities, a lot of abusive and triggering anti-femme, patriarchal rhetoric has been clogging our spaces both online and offline. How can we ensure and maintain critical self-preservation in these times? How can we lift one another up? How can we build community through transformative justice?
Join us for an educational session on boundaries, consent, the myth of “grey area” rape, and think of radical transformative futures in our respective scenes. We’ll be invoking messages of perseverance by great black femme activists and writers including adrienne maree brown, Octavia Butler, Iyanla Vanzant, and Audre Lorde.
A guided exercise in physical mindfulness practices as well as an exercise that will allow attendees to come together as a group to write about how traumas are manifested within their own bodies.
**While this event focuses on the voices of black and brown femmes and QTPOC, men who are grounded in anti-patriarchal practices and are more than welcome.**
