9th Annual Community Freestyle: Tools for the Rev

Saturday, May 20, 2017 - 1:00pm to 6:00pm

Calling all trans, two-spirit, gender non conforming, queer, lesbian, bisexual, and gay people of color in Brooklyn and our allies!

The Safe OUTside the System Collective of The Audre Lorde Project invites you to our 9th annual Community Freestyle! Gather your transformative and revolutionary tools and join us for an intergenerational afternoon of building survivor-led self-determined community safety for ourselves and our neighbors of color in central Brooklyn.

This year’s Community Freestyle will focus on building, sharing, and exchanging the tools we need to build the revolution and movements we need and desire to survive and flourish. We can build safety and wellness for ourselves! We don't need to rely on the state when we have each other and our badass, super cute, ancestral, abolitionist, interdependent toolkits!

The Freestyle will feature cultural performances, visual art exhibitions, workshops, childcare, a delicious meal, and a space to ground with community in the Safe OUTside the System's Safe Neighborhood Campagin!
