Focus Group for Queer/Women/Women of Colour on Marginalization in Activist Spaces, Toronto

This is for all queer/women/women of colour, who have felt marginalized within spaces of resistance.

Have you done/doing community/political activism and feel the same oppressions that you face outside of these "safe" spaces within your organizing? Do you have a problem with the structure of these organizations that do not challenge internal reproductions of marginalization - ie heterosexism, racism and ableism? Do you feel disenfranchised? Annoyed, or simply feel as if things won't change?

Well, we are conducting a focus group to discuss these issues for a community research project to change the very spaces that we invest our time and energy in. Please keep in mind that there will be total confidentiality, however change will not come without YOUR input and expressions!

This will also be an opportunity to meet activists from across the city, organizing in a wide array of communities, to share, discuss and start the wheels for transformation!
