United StatesMidwest Feminist Conference: October 5-7, 2012
Minnesota State University- Mankato, Minnesota
This October, students, graduates, and community activists from around the Midwest will come together to participate in an exciting feminist activist dialogue. Join in our ongoing discussion about what it means to be a feminist activist in the Midwest, how to educate and engage our campuses/communities, and what it takes to challenge anti-feminist legislation and patriarchal culture. We'll share our knowledge and experiences in workshops, share our skills in skillshares, meet and share meals with other activists, and share a common space that promotes communication and equality in order to better our own activism at home.
Interested in leading a workshop? We need lots of workshops on lots of topics, so please consider applying to present a workshop or skillsharing session! Fill out this pdf form and return it to Laura Shultz or Laura Kacere.
Priority will be given to workshop proposals postmarked on or before August 24, 2012, and September 21 for skill-sharing applications.
Please help us spread the word - share this information with friends, publish in newsletters, and post fliers in bookstores, co-ops, classrooms, and everywhere else! We want this to be as large and accessible as possible!
