Please join Occupy Gender Equality this January 22nd for a day of learning and discussion to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. They will be discussing multiple topics related to blowing apart gender “norms” created by our society which reinforce attacks against gender equality. This includes confronting the dangerous gender binary and the way it marginalizes any person who does not fit neatly within the boxes that society has created for us, as well as the way the transgender community has continued to struggle to gain inclusion.
They will also be addressing specifically the importance of remembering this historic date to reflect on the successes achieved with the Roe v Wade decision as well as to address the current state of the attacks against access to reproductive health here in Seattle, across the country and around the world.
Race, Economics and Reproductive Justice — 11:00 - 12:30
Trans Marginalization — 12:45 - 2:15
The New Fight for Reproductive Rights: Roe v Wade 39 Years Later — 2:45 - 4:15
Gender Binary and Culture Jamming — 4:30 - 6:00
Please join for one or all of these teach-ins. The format of the event will include a presentation by some members of the 99% who have knowledge about these specific topics followed by an open facilitated discussion where everyone is highly encouraged to share their experiences and opinions. Every single person has experiences unique to them which can help shape the discussion and the realizations that people will hopefully take away with them following this so…we need you here.
