Southern Girls Convention 2002

by chuckO Sunday, Jun. 02, 2002 at 3:06 PM


Fourth Annual Southern Girls Convention

July 19 - 21, 2002

Athens, Georgia.

> http://www.southerngirlsconvention.com

Please visit the new website, and learn more about this exciting upcoming



The Southern Girls Convention is an annual grassroots meeting of social

justice activists devoted to empowering women and girls in the South, and

discussing Southern culture, views and stereotypes of the South, and the

struggle for social justice. Each year's convention is hosted by a different

Southern community and facilitated by local organizers. Past conventions were

held in Memphis, Tennessee, Louisville, Kentucky, and Auburn, Alabama. Last

year's convention in Auburn drew over 500 participants from all over the

South and beyond.

This year's SGC invites activists from across the country to meet in ATHENS,

GEORGIA on the weekend of July 19-21. Hundreds of activists will meet for a

weekend of discussion, action, and entertainment devoted to building

pro-woman community in the South.


Southern Girls Convention is based around discussions, workshops, and

presentations which give participants the opportunity to share skills, share

ideas, discuss important issues, organize campaigns, and have fun as a

community. All workshops are organized and facilitated by the participants

themselves. Other events will include an "un-shop" swap meet, Southern

women's art show, nightly music shows, tables for participants and

organizations to display information, zines, art, and things they have made.

SGC also allows hundreds of activists from across the country to meet,

network, strategize, and organize in their efforts on behalf of

social justice. Feel free to bring video projects, zines, writing, and

anything you are interested in sharing to the convention.

Past workshops have included:

+ Group discussions on fatphobia, abortion rights and access, radical

parenting, "100 Years of Revolutionary Wimmin," the criminalization of women,

"Queer and Trans Youth in the South," gender bias in schools, sexism in the

activist community, "Marginalization and Tokenization within the Grrrl

Movement," peer education for men and ending violence against women, and

"Radical, Southern, and All Fired Up--Where Do We Go From Here?"

+ Skill-sharing on radical cheerleading, community access television, gun

safety and self-defense, workplace union organizing, screen printing,

sexercises, Internet organizing, and start a consciousness-raising group.

+ Organizing meetings for campaigns from Amnesty International, the Coalition

of Immokalee Workers, and Planned Parenthood, and state-by-state caucuses for

people to meet fellow organizers in their own area.
