Dyke March Town Hall
Dyke March Toronto is pleased to announce a Community Meeting on February 27, 2016. Come share your thoughts and ideas for the coming Dyke March and join the discussion about creating a Community Coalition.
OPSEU Building, 31 Wellesley Street East
Saturday, February 27th, 2016
2pm – 5pm
Dyke March Toronto seeks to be accountable to our communities by upholding values of transparency, respect, and collaboration. Hosting Community Meetings is one of the ways the team works to fulfill this goal.
Your feedback is essential to our organizing
The meeting is open to all dyke-identified, trans*-identified and gender independent folks and allies. We seek to create a space that is as safe, inclusive and supportive as possible for people who are trans* and/or gender-independent or non-binary. We recognize that we live in a society full of power imbalances along lines of race, class, gender, sex, sexuality, age, physical ability, size and other diverse identities. Though these differences can feel intimidating, we also affirm that we share common experience that inspires us to fight these norms. As we work towards ending homophobia, lesbophobia, transphobia, misogyny, transmisogyny, and misogynoir in our society, we feel it is essential to build community and experience each other in new ways, loving and supporting one another.
If you are unable to attend, please send along your thoughts either via email (email@example.com), postal service or hand delivery to: Dyke March Toronto, Pride Toronto, 55 Berkeley Street, Toronto, ON, M5A 2W5. Messages received by 5PM on Thursday February 25th will be presented at the meeting.
