The Cascadia Trans and/or Women's Action Camp is coming! To find out how watch our awkward video!

What is TWAC?
Since 2008, the Trans and/or Women's Action Camp (TWAC) has been a fierce action camp for folks who identify as trans women, female, trans men, two-spirit, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, and gender-variant. TWAC is an intentional space to learn about social and environmental justice, share campaign information, and gain direct action skills in a conscientious, supportive, empowering and encouraging environment for voices often marginalized. At the end of the camp, we take collective action on issues of importance. TWAC Cascadia will be in the forest in Washington Sept 1-8th.

From the Dine' women defending their native lands against destructive mining, to the eco-feminists defending forests from logging and development; from the immigrant and trans women defending their lives from the prison industrial complex, to the parents and midwifes defending their bodies and babies from the patriarchal medical establishment, women and trans folks have always been powerhouses of political action, and TWAC aims to support this in a safe(r) environment.

Ways you can support TWAC:
Watch our hella awkward fundraising video! Share it with your friends and on social media! Donate some money!

TWAC is free to attendees but it takes a lot of money to sustain it. We need money for food, transportation, camping gear, climbing gear, art supplies, workshop supplies, medical/wellness supplies, legal costs, and to pay workshop presenters!

We also need:
Workshop presenters, medics, conflict mediators, musicians, story tellers, rabble-rousers, volunteers, and you!

Get ready cuz we're bringing it and so should you!
