Trans & Womyn's Action Camp- Cascadia!

get stoked for the trans & womyn's action camp 2009
Trans' and Womyn's Action Camp 2009 is a gathering of eco-activists, who
are also working to bring down patriarchy. Come a week early for a 6 day
training and workshop event in the Cascadia bio-region from June 20th-26th, 2009.

This will be a safe(r) space where transgendered, intersexed, genderqueer,
androgynous and womyn identified folk will be able to share skills in an
empowering environment. We will be exploring the land before all the RRR
attendees arrive, and we will also be providing skillshares on how to help
set up large camps for gatherings. There will also be tons of other
workshops and trainings on many diverse issues- central theme here- FUN!

We are now putting out a call for workshop presenters and trainers!
If you are transgendered, intersexed, genderqueer, androgynous and womyn
identified and would like to get involved in the organizing, or would like
to give a workshop, please get in touch!
