FEMINISM UNBOUND: RESISTING FEAR AND EXCLUSION IN OUR MOVEMENTS
WHEN: APRIL 11, 2O19, 7PM - 9PM
WHERE: UNBOUNCE (400-401 W GEORGIA ST, VANCOUVER)
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
Feminist movements are often plagued by fear and exclusion, and within our community, groups are finding ways to mask their oppressive beliefs and exclusionary rhetoric in a smokescreen of progressive language.
Our panel will discuss why intersectional solidarity is our only way forward, and how honouring all voices and bodies that face hate, marginalization, and erasure is an essential aspect of feminism.
This event will focus its attention on complex issues facing trans folks, sex workers, and other marginalized communities with the goal of strengthening the bonds between us, and inspiring allyship among participants.
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.
