"Our Safety, Ourselves: Challenging hate and police violence"


Come celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, two spirit, transgender and gender-non-conforming people of color living in the Bed-Stuy and Central Brooklyn community. The day will feature local artists, performances, workshops, music, vendors, family friendly wellness & fitness activities and more!

Who we are: The Safe OUTside the System (SOS) Collective is an anti-violence program led by and for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans, and Gender Non Conforming people of color. We are devoted to challenging hate and police violence by using community based strategies rather than relying on the police. SOS is a project of the Audre Lorde Project, a LGBTSTGNC people of color community organizing center. www.alp.org

Notes on access: It is our intention to create an accessible and welcoming space for LGBTSTGNC POC families, communities, and allies in Central Brooklyn. The venue is physically accessible (flat venue with ramps to the bathrooms), can be accessed by public transit (B38, B43, and G to Bedford-Nostrand), and provides gender neutral public bathrooms. We will offer Spanish language interpretation. Audre Lorde Project community practitioners and other community members will provide a variety of wellness and fitness activities for event goers. ALP members trained in security and de-escalation will support the safety and well-being of our community members throughout the event. Please contact cpinedaatalp [dot] org if you have any suggestions or additions on how to make the space more accessible, and efukuiatalp [dot] org if you have any particular concerns about security.
