Sage 1214

Join WAC to learn how we can build an inclusive, intersectional community at UW Oshkosh! Soraya Membreno is Bitch Media’s Director of Community and will engage participants in dialogue about navigating predominately white institutions from her perspective as a first-generation immigrant. Participants will be encouraged to enter into open dialogue about the details of assimilation, feelings of tokenization, fitting into a new environment while still maintaining ties to home, and how being fully yourself can be an act of radical resistance. The conversation will then turn to action and Soraya will facilitate a how-to workshop for building a feminist community that is accessible, inclusive, and intergenerational. How can we build upon collective history to come together and make space for one another? And once we have, what do we do with it?
