FACE YOUR LIFE.
FACE BC workshops bring PEOPLE together for aN inspiring, COLLABORATIVE discussion.
FEMINISM UNBOUND: RESISTING FEAR AND EXCLUSION IN OUR MOVEMENTS
WHEN: APRIL 11, 2O19, 6PM - 9PM
WHERE: UNBOUNCE (400-401 W GEORGIA ST, VANCOUVER)
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
FACE has volunteered to assist a collective of local feminist activists and organizers with this important event.
We will be gathering on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, on which the majority of us are uninvited guests.
With a rise in fascism around the world, hate groups are finding ways to mask their beliefs and cloak their hateful rhetoric in a smokescreen of progressive language. Intersectional solidarity is our only way forward, with the honouring of all voices and bodies that face hate, marginalization, and erasure.
Join us for a night of radical discussion and feminist praxis where we will unpack the socially sanctioned hate that our communities face on a daily basis; speak to practices of accountability; and form bonds between us. This event will focus its attention on complex issues facing trans folks, sex workers, and other marginalized communities.
All feminists and allies welcome!
FACE Your Professional and Personal Relationships: Setting Healthy Boundaries
WHEN: MARCH 2019 (TBD)
COST: $29 (sliding scale)
Life is full of challenging people and difficult personalities. For centuries, we have been conditioned to stay silent and accept unwelcome behavior. Even though we've said "enough is enough!", advocating for ourselves at work and at home can still feel impossible.
What do you do if you are being harassed or bullied at work? How do you identify and avoid toxic friendships and relationships? This workshop will focus on developing skills to advocate for yourself (and others) at work and in life. We will look at warning signs, personality types and triggers, communication techniques and boundary setting. Additionally, we will discuss legal and therapeutic resources.
