Please share with folks you think would be interested in presenting at the conference and attending the conference. The conference will be sliding scale donation (no one will be turned away b/c of cost) and will be the weekend of March 31st in the Student Activity Center at UT Austin. If you have questions, or would like to volunteer please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration will go live March 1st.
We want to include the experiences and perspectives of both students and community members, prioritize 101-level introductions to theories and movements, highlight the complexities and intersections of identities in relation to the queer, trans, feminist, and other activist communities, and put a special emphasis on language and space.
Some suggested topics are:
-Voices and Stories of people of color
-Queer, Trans, and Feminist advocacy and activism
-Social media activism
-Health and healthcare for queer, trans, and femme individuals
-Intersections with other activist movements (for example #BlackLivesMatter)
-Media representation of feminist, trans, and queer communities
-Local, regional, national, worldwide policy, legislation, and activism
-Allyship, advocacy, solidarity to activist communities
Keep in mind that workshops will run approximately an hour and we anticipate 25-35 individuals to attend each session.
Please submit all proposals to us by March 1, 2017 at 5:00pm.
