Women March Forward: Taking the Next Steps
Sat, 25 March 2017, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM MDT
We are building on the momentum of the Women's March! Join us for the official follow up event on March 25th!
This is the OFFICIAL follow-up event following the Women's March in January.
Essentially, we are facilitating a "Human Library." It will be an event that aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Individuals volunteer as human 'books' and participants in the event can 'read' the book - meaning they would have a one on one conversation with the volunteer, and share in a dialogue about that individuals experience.
We are excited to have representation from multiple communities confirmed, but would love some more! If interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
To help us with planning, please use the Eventbrite link (posted above) to register.
Dr. Janice Williamson will be doing us the honour of speaking at our event. Dr. Williamson has been working as a public intellectual since the 1980s starting as peace activist in nonviolent civil disobedience and editor of the interdisciplinary Up and Doing: Canadian Women and Peace. She has written on feminist social and cultural issues and, as current AASUA Equity Chair, she takes up social justice work in an institutional context advocating for workplace equity and diversity.
Child Care will be provided AT NO COST for attendees.
NO ONE WILL BE TURNED AWAY due to lack of funds, but to cover some of the costs required to put this event on, a suggested minimum donation of $10 is requested.
Shirts and buttons will also be available, and 100% of the proceeds will go towards future initiatives.
We look forward to seeing you there!
