What We Believe In

  • We believe that feminism is a lens that throws all systems producing inequality into doubt and a reflective process through which we can work to dismantle interconnected modalities of oppression.
  • We believe in working collaboratively in brave, friendly spaces because liberation is a collective process.
  • We believe that art is fundamental to the creation of thriving, open societies. So, too, are open access to educational resources.  
  • We believe that representation matters.
  • We believe that the experiences of women and non-binary people are varied and complex and we value and honor these differences in embodied knowledge.
  • We see our greatest achievement as a participant walking into a workshop and learning that they can exist on Wikipedia and be a critical convoy of information for people like them and people they might not ever fully understand but believe in.
  • We draw inspiration from heroes past and present: the women of BLM and Idle No More, Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, Judith Butler, Berta Cáceres, Kathleen Hanna, Dolores Huerta, Malala Yousafzai, Cecile Richards, Nina Simone, Angela Davis, Sandy Stone, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw and on and on.
