Join RocCity Coalition, Rochester Young Professionals, Women’s Foundation of Genesee Valley, Women’s Council, a Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce affiliate, and 540WMain Communiversity for the next RocIDEA Connection. This event will be a thought-provoking and engaging community driven workshop on intersectional feminism. If you did not participate in the first intersectional feminism event, we encourage you to take the intro event through 540WMain Communiversity (link to schedule in the discussion) or at a minimum go through the list of resources provided in the discussion and watch all of the videos.

During our two hour session, through presentation, Q&A, and small group discussion, this workshop will unpack the concepts of identity, intersectionality and feminism through a historical, political, and social lense. The workshop will challenge participants to explore and analyze their internal biases and identities and examine how all active feminists can be more inclusive and intersectional in their practice. This workshop will be facilitated by Maya Crane from Rochester Area Community Foundation, Iman Abid from Genesee Valley Chapter of the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) and Calvin Eaton, Founder of 540WMain Communiversity.

This event is open to adults of all ages and gender expressions. We will have lite snacks and encourage you to bring a reusable water bottle for the jugs of water we will provide. Networking begins at 6 pm and the facilitated workshop promptly at 6:30 pm. Space is limited and we will fill all of the seats, so please only RSVP if you can stay for the majority of 6:30-8:30 pm. http://feminisimpt2.rsvpify.com
