Womxn Who Rock: Water is Life Unconference

  • Washington Hall 153 14th Ave Seattle WA

We gather together to organize in community around the theme of building ethical relationships between land, water, place and people. Inspired by the “Water is Life” movement, we are creating a space for dialogue across different organizing efforts and communities. Featuring a 30 min. musical by Gabriela Seattle, report back panel on Standing Rock & local organizing, skill-share workshops, children’s story circle, open mic, and t-shirt & button making, and mini-fandango/bomazo! See schedule below--we will update with new developments! Free and all ages!
