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!
ALP will be holding an open space for anyone who would like to come and spend time with community to mourn and celebrate the life of Brenda Bostick. During the following hours we will have tea, cookies, and a small art project in our fishbowl space. Please drop by if you identify as someone who is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Two Spirit or Gender Non Conforming Person of Color.
