We have good and bad news. Good news is our fearless leader, Kristina, is graduating this December (hopefully!) and as excited as we are for her, we are devastated to see her go. At this time, Feminist Action Project will be taking a brief hiatus from our regularly scheduled meetings next semester while we recruit new leadership and focus on planning our annual conference with the Queer & Trans Student Alliance, which will be March 30th in the Student Activity Center... SAVE THE DATE!).
If you want to volunteer for the conference or help out, contact QTSA at email@example.com ! Over the past eight (!) years, we’ve hosted a variety of wonderful keynote speakers such as Feminista Jones and Kim Katrin Milan, and featured tons of amazing workshops, panels, and sessions from folks around the community, so we would love for you to be involved. (P.S. You can check out all of our past conferences on our blog.)
We will start having regular meetings again in the fall semester. In the meantime, we hope you will join us in support other awesome organizations around campus run by Feminist Action Project members and other wonderful folks such as Silk Club, Healing. Expressing. Resisting. Existing. (HERE), Feminist Latinx Organization Empowering Society (FLORES), and Student Association of Gender Studies Engagement (SAGE).
The Women’s Resource Agency (WRA) is also putting on their third annual production of Amplify. Find out more here.
We will also continue having Feminist Friday, our weekly discussion series, every Friday at 1 pm in the Gender and Sexuality Center (SAC 2.112) until the End of the Semester Self Care Event on December 7th. Feminist Friday will start again the first full week of classes in the spring!
Lastly, please join us for our zine release party this Wednesday, November 28th at 7 pm in the GSC, which will be our last event for the semester. You can RSVP on the Facebook page here. There is a rumor there will be pizza. :)
