GET STOKED FOR THE TRANS & WOMYN'S ACTION CAMP 2009

TWAC!= The delightful sound of smashing patriarchy
GET STOKED FOR THE TRANS & WOMYN'S ACTION CAMP 2009

Trans' and Womyn's Action Camp (TWAC) 2009 is a gathering of eco-activists,
who are also working to bring down patriarchy. Come out for a 6 day training,
workshop, and action event in the Cascadia bio-region, same location as the Round
River Rondezvous 09, 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, trainers, and organizing
volunteers! 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! There are also support roles that are
available for gender-privileged folks.


Some workshop ideas are:
- responding to sexual assault in activist communities
- self-defense
- non-violent direct action
- racism, sexism, classism in the movement
- how to start a grassroots organization
- urban gardening
- supporting mental health
- foraging
- yoga
- herbalism
- radical cheerleading
- aerial acrobatics/ ground acrobatics
- chopping wood
- building shelters
- actions!!
