Solidarity Beyond Borders: Queering the Revolution

  • Swarthmore College (map)

This workshop seek to unpack and question how do we, as femmes/women/gender expansive people of color who have developed our own feminisms that are centered on our different racial/ethnic and cultural identities, come together to practice solidarity both locally and globally. We go through Women of Color in Solidarity’s Radical Queer Healing Framework: centering queerness as political, centering hood femmes, & centering friendship through community care.

Themes that arise in this workshops include examples of how our body memories disrupt colonial borders, how we must redefine what it means to “show up”, differences in privilege within our own communities, and how we must interrogate our different understandings and relationships to the lands we are visiting or for some occupying. We unpack the main question of, what does it mean to stand in solidarity with people of color down your block and beyond colonial borders?
