TWAC is an action camp for folks who identify as female and/or trans, trans women, trans men, gender queer, gender variant, two-spirited and agender to build community, heal and strengthen our cultures of resistance. Our focuses will be on developing skills for climbing, blockading, flash-mobbin’ and making art for protest as well as having safer and mind-expanding workshops and discussions about diversity, anti-oppression, intersectionality, transphobia, transmisogyny, environmental justice, and direct action. We’ll also be holding a variety of workshops on car mechanics, DIY underwear making, consent as queen, playing power chords on guitar, survivor support, plant identification, frontline solidarity, legal support for direct action/civil disobedience and much more… There’ll be something for everyone! Some of our caucuses will be: POC, mixed race, parents, trans women, gender/sexuality-based violence survivors, dog parents, drinkers, non-drinkers and any more you’d like to create!
