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.

Accessibility:
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.
