A community roundtable discussion on the rise of TERF/SWERF activity in Victoria, Vancouver, and beyond.
TERF = Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist(s)
SWERF = Sex Worker Exclusionary Radical Feminist(s)
This is also an opportunity to speak directly to the recent TERF/SWERF incident at the Victoria Anarchist Bookfair in September 2016.
The goal of the roundtable is for the communities directly affected to discuss this issue and possible actions/solutions.
No TERFs or SWERFs or general oppressive fuckery will be tolerated. (This is not a platform for the hate-spewing TERFs/SWERFs.)
6:00pm: Territorial Acknowledgement & Opening
Roundtable Housekeeping: safer space guidelines, facilitators, minute takers, etc.
6:30pm: Roundtable Discussion
9:00pm: Closing Rounds & Cleanup
This event is organized by The Anti-Oppression Network and Camas Bookstore respectively.
Sunday, March 19th at 6pm
This community workshop on anti-oppression, decolonization, and conflict resolution is open to all and suitable for folks who are new to the language and understandings of oppression, colonization, anti-oppression, and decolonization, as well as folks who have been working within these frameworks for some time.
Striving towards being anti-oppressive and decolonizing requires ongoing learning. We understand that work is never done and encourage you all to come out!
We ask that all participants come with an open heart and mind, a willingness to examine one’s social position, a willingness to hear critical feedback, and sit with feelings of discomfort as we do this important work together.
This event is taking places on traditional, unceeded W̱SÁNEĆ and Lkwungen territory, as represented today by the Songhees and Esquimalt nations.
