What do you do/offer?
We create events, workshops, trainings, and programming for our campus and extended community that focus on sexual assault and domestic violence awareness and prevention, supporting survivors, healing, feminism, advocacy, body positivity, sex positivity, women’s rights, and equality. We offer resources, support, a physical space, as well as free coffee, tea, condoms, pads, and tampons.

Of course! People of all genders are allowed into the space. We do have a few select groups and events that are closed spaces for women and nb femmes, including our Sexual Assault Healing Support group.
Are community members, children or high school students welcome?
Of course! We have room for everyone, and encourage engagement from our community members. We appreciate you!
What is feminism?
The theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes. The belief that women, and all people, should have equal rights. Intersectionality is a term coined by American civil rights advocate Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw often used in critical theories to describe the ways in which oppressive institutions (racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, classism, etc.) are interconnected and cannot be examined separately from one another.
