Building on the feminist activist tradition of consciousness-raising groups, each month Charis invites community members to join this lightly facilitated group to talk about issues in their personal lives or society as a whole that they are trying to process or deconstruct. The group will then use intersectional feminist strategies as tools to help talk through those issues. Group members will share resources, books, websites, and support. The goal is for this group to grow from a place of venting and expressions of solidarity into concrete actions and collaborations. People of all genders, levels of political experience, and education are welcome. This is a Charis Circle Founding the Future of Feminism Event. The suggested donation is $5.
