FAP & QTSA Conference 2017: Intersectional Advocacy: Queer, Trans, and Feminist Identities in Changing Political Climates

For the first time in history, the Feminist Action Project hosted a joint conference with the Queer and Trans Student Alliance. Entitled Intersectional Advocacy: Queer, Trans, and Feminist Identities in Changing Political Climates, the conference welcomed more than 150 UT and non-UT students, faculty, staff, and community members for its two-day conference. As Kim Katrin Milan kicked off the conference with her delightful, engaging keynote speech, the conference the  followed with a full day of workshops and panels, focusing on issues that those with queer, trans, and/or feminist identities encounter in these changing political climates. From the International Indigenous Youth Council, to BeVocal, the conference was possible with attempts and efforts of many organizations to frame and highlight dialogues in light of current political events.

The Feminist Action Project would like to dedicate many thanks to Events Co-Sponsorship Board, BeVocal, Queer Graduate Student Alliance, Student Government, UT Co-Op, Pride & Equity Faculty-Staff Alliance, Center for Women's and Gender Studies, Human Rights Student Advisory Council, Division of Diversity & Community Engagement, the Orange Jackets, the Gender and Sexuality Center, Queer and Trans Student Alliance, and Senate of College Councils, who helped to make this wonderful event possible.
