TWAC 2012 -- August 29th-September 3rd in beautiful Western Washington

TWAC! = The lovely Sound of Smashing Patriarchy!

The Trans’ and Womyn’s Action Camp is a gathering of eco-activists, who
are also working to bring down patriarchy. TWAC is for folks who identify
as any variety of gender variant and marginalized genders. There will be
space to share skills in a supportive, empowering and encouraging
environment.

Greetings! The Trans and Womyn’s Action Camp (TWAC) collective is excited
to announce the third annual campout in Cascadia! Comprised of trans and
womyn organizers from various chapters of Rising Tide North America, TWAC
aims to take space and create a safe(r) six day action camp nestled deep
within the beautiful forests of the Cascadia bioregion in the Pacific
Northwest. Stemming from the larger environmental movement, TWAC was
formed out of a need to make space for marginalized identities that
otherwise may not be represented within the broader push for environmental
justice, which often occurs at the compromise of social justice.

In the past TWAC has consisted of workshops and trainings on things like
strategic campaigning, non-violent direct action, tree climbing, security
culture, trans 101, botany, how to prevent burnout/mental health and
self-care, theatre of the oppressed and more (another make out workshop
perhaps? Yes, please, but only if you wanna)! The days were filled with
workshops, swimming, hiking and communally prepared meals while the nights
sang with beautiful conversation and story telling around a campfire,
reclaiming space making room for comradery, support, and safety (enough
for some consensually wild truth or dare).
