I went to the Women's March, now what?
"I went to the Women's March, now what?" is an interactive workshop on engaging in intersectional* activism, put on with support from femex and Potter's House.
The workshop is geared toward folks who are newer to activism and motivated by energy from the Women's March or anger at this administration's rhetoric and policies. This is also for folks who may be confused by critiques of the women's march, and want to understand how to better act in solidarity with others.
We have one required reading: https://mic.com/articles/166720/blm-co-founder-protesting-isnt-about-who-can-be-the-most-radical-its-about-winning -- This article by #BlackLivesMatter Co-Founder & Activist Alicia Garza inspired our workshop and will be discussed throughout the day.

We will plan to break for food at 12:30-1. Folks should plan to do lunch on their own.
* Intersectionality, a term coined by Kimberle Crenshaw, is "a way to view a range of social problems to better ensure inclusiveness of remedies, and to identify opportunities for greater collaboration between and across social movements.” (AAPF, Crenshaw's Thinktank)
