How to organize + create momentum in your community: a framework for anyone from the curious beginner to the established organizer. Learn about history + basics, and workshop your ideas for action. Space is limited to 30 participants. In a time of great uncertainty, it's important to increase our connections to community and to each other.

Join us and learn about the history, basics and also workshop your own ideas for action. Week 1 || History and Background A brief history of activism and organizing in America. What worked/didn’t work, where we are now and what we see both locally and nationally. An interactive lecture and also discussion.

This will include an overview of roles commonly used by national advance teams, as well as protest plans and other helpful tips for events from small gathering to thousands big. Week 4 || Your Next Move Pulling from the previous classes, we will discuss your own individual idea behind community involvement and movement. What will you be a part of? What momentum will you start?

As you know, the new board of directors at In Other Words has engaged in an accountability process in order to work towards intentional community-building and inclusivity at In Other Words in light of recent issues related (unacceptable) TERF behavior. This is the next meeting in a series of feminist community gatherings that are part of a larger transparency/accountability process that the In Other Words board of directors is taking in light of recent issues related to transmisogyny, transphobia and improving inclusivity at In Other Words for marginalized and oppressed community members. The December meeting will be on Sunday, December 7th from 6PM – 8PM. This meeting will not take place at In Other Words Feminist Community Center, but will rather be located in an off-location site, at the Quaker Friends Meeting House 4312 SE Stark St Portland OR, as part of this intentional process to foster a neutral space for accountable & safe discussion and community-building. This meeting is open to trans/nonbinary people, and the In Other Words board of directors and volunteers, as a way to build an intentional space of dialogue, accountability, peace-building, community-building, and forward motion. Twenty-three-person occupancy capacity. In Other Words Feminist Community Center is an entirely volunteer-run feminist non-profit. Please send any clarifying questions or comments to board@inotherwords.org
