The Trans and/or Women's Action Camp is a week long action camp in the forest for folks who identify as women &/or transgender. The camp is an intentional safer space for folks to learn about social & environmental justice & gain activist skills in an empowering environment. There is also a lot of community building & a political direct action at the end of the camp. TWAC will be in the forest in Washington Sept 1-8th. For more info:

Safer space policy:
We want this show to be a safer space. We have a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment or other bullying. Anyone causing a problem will be asked to leave. If there is a problem at the party tell someone who is collecting money at the entrance or someone else doing security. Ableism, transphobia, racism, sexism, homophobia, sizeism, classism, anti-sex worker prejudice, & other oppressive attitudes are not welcome at this show.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. The main rooms are large. We will be mindful of wheelchair access when setting up for the show. There is a gender neutral single stall bathroom on the 1st floor near the main room. The bathroom does not have support bars on the walls.

There will be some couches & chairs available to sit on.
