After some reflection after the first SlutWalkTO, SlutWalk is determined to keep going.
With your help, SlutWalk has become a mechanism for increased dialogue on victim-blaming, slut-shaming, misogynist and oppressive ideas that need to be challenged. These damaging ideas affect all of us and play into racist, ableist, homophobic discussions, discussions about status, class, sex work, indigenous rights and more that need to be challenged.
SW has become an empowering event, and with this in mind, we are proud to announce that…
SLUTWALK WILL BE RETURNING AGAIN NEXT APRIL!
The five folks behind SlutWalkTO organizing, plus some other incredible voices we hope will join the team (info coming soon!), will be building on what SW did well this year, how to improve, and how to keep going.
Here’s what’s coming up:
SATELLITES: Support ’em, spread the word! http://www.slutwalktoronto.com/satellite
NEW, IMPROVED WEBSITE: We want SWTO to turn into SW International, with an online home that will act as support for Satellites, will hold information about our forthcoming programs, education and outreach with different cultural communities, global and local resources, news and current issues, and a space for contributions and debate. Coming summer 2011
MERCHANDISE: Help raise funds for future SW activities and spread the word with good lookin’ swag
INITIATIVES: Hopes for a SW PSA campaign, work with allies and more outreach for various communities
