*Trans and/or Women’s Action Camp. October 19 – 21. Augusta region, Maine. *
*Who:* TWAC is an action camp
for folks who identify as female and/or trans, gender queer and gender
variant. This space is not for people who were assigned male identities
and continue to identify that way. TWAC Maine aims to bring folks
together to grow solidarity and community in our region of the world
*What:* TWAC Maine is inspired
by similar action camps around the country, committed to building safer
spaces and united cultures of resistance. At TWAC we will share
campaign information, organizing and direct action skills in a
conscientious and empowering environment for voices often marginalized.
At then end of the camp we will take collective action, as decided by
those who attend.
TWAC Maine invites workshops that address anti-oppression,
anti-colonialism, issues of economic, environmental, racial and social
justice, direct action, community organizing and more! Please contact
us if you would like to facilitate a workshop, or if there is an issue
that you think we should prioritize.
*Logistics:* TWAC Maine will be
two days of camping (indoor/outdoor) with three meals a day. We will
have a suggested donation for your time at camp, however no one will be
turned away for lack of funds.
TWAC Maine is committed to accessibility. Please let us know of any
needs you have relating to childcare, healthcare, ability,
safer/accountable spaces, diet, expenses or other. There may be funds
available if the cost of transportation or lost wages would keep you
from coming, especially if you are indigenous, a person of color, a
directly affected community member, working class or trans. TWAC Maine
recognizes that these voices are too often under-represented at action
*Get involved:* If you would
