Here are some of my Safetyfest plans for today:
- From 10 am-6 pm there will be events happening at the Ed Roberts Campus near Ashby BART, 3075 Adeline St. I'll be popping in and out of the wonderful Healing Space and Art Space that will be available throughout the day.
- At 10:30 am, a Transformative Justice workshop will provide a framework for transforming the conditions that perpetuate violence.
- At 1:30 pm, I'll be co-facilitating Notes from Our Underground with Jen Cross. We'll explore how writing freely can change our lives.
- At 3:45 pm, Queers Challenging Policing will feature a transnational panel of fierce queer people of color organizers who will share how LGBTQQ folks are organizing against criminalization and police violence.
Also, please note that tonight's nighttime Safetyfest event has been canceled. Instead, Say No to Violence!/Di No a la Violencia! will be a demonstration following the April 1 attack against a transgender woman in the Mission District of San Francisco. It will take place at the 16th and Mission St BART station. I'll be reading poetry, among other demonstrations of community power. I hope you'll join me!
