EVENTS: Gender Justice & Self Love for People of Color

VARIOUS EVENTS IN FRESNO, BAKERSFIELD AND VISALIA...SEE BELOW FOR ALL THE DETAILS...


AUGUST 15TH 630-9PM

Brown Boi Project returns to the Central Valley with an art-based event to build upon the work from last year to re-imagine what health, healing and gender justice can look like in our communities. Local artists will provoke real conversations about challenging misogyny and sexism and how this is essential to our self-care as people of color using poetry, visual art, spoken word, short video, dance and vocal performances related to transforming masculinity, self-love/self-care and gender justice.

Summer of Brown Boi 2015 will build upon the work from the tour last year to build power and a larger conversation around gender for young people of color. Over the summer, we plan to engage 1 million conversations - in cities across the country and through social media - to bring young people of color into the gender justice movement, build a conversation around self-love & self-care for people of color and identify regional & local policy changes that can support wellness and healing in communities of color all over the country.

*Free event
*Food: Vegan and Gluten free by Chef Rogue Vi

*Music: DJ ALuv (Ana Pano)

AUGUST 16TH 1-4PM


Join us for a Gender Justice workshop where we will participate in multiple activities and conversations that will help us shift the ways our communities talk about gender. We will come together to examine our gender journeys as individuals, and as communities, and explore the connections between the struggles that we all face as people of color.

Summer of Brown Boi 2015 will build upon the work from the tour last year to build power and a larger conversation around gender for young people of color. Over the summer, we plan to engage 1 million conversations - in cities across the country and through social media - to bring young people of color into the gender justice movement, build a conversation around self-love & self-care for people of color and identify regional & local policy changes that can support wellness and healing in communities of color all over the country.
