INTERSECTIONAL FEMINISM 101
While there are many different feminisms, the Emily Taylor Center promotes a feminism that is both intersectional and trans-inclusive. Like Black feminist bell hooks, we believe that “feminism is for everybody.” In this 3-hour workshop, you will learn the basic principles of intersectional feminism as well as methods for beginning to practice it in your own life.
Quick & Dirty
In this 1-hour “quick and dirty” version of our 3-hour Crash Course, you will learn the basics of intersectional feminism.

MAKE MINI ZINES! WORKSHOP
Mini zines are a powerful medium for social change and self-expression. In this 3-hour workshop, participants learn how to creatively communicate their ideas and experiences by making their own mini zine. This program is meant to promote self-authorship and self-definition, while also creating an archive of zines that will offer readers access to a range of perspectives and multiple ways of knowing.
