LBTQ Women’s 360 Health & Empowerment Fair

“Caring for myself is an act of political warfare.” – Audre Lorde

Join us for a FREE day with LBTQ women dedicated to protecting our minds, bodies, and rights in challenging times. This year’s 360 will center around self-care and resistance, with a wide array of workshops: from healthy aging to empowerment through BDSM, and how to be an activist (without losing your mind). Don’t miss our panel on intersectional feminism with powerful L.A. LBTQ women activists; and the keynote speech by Amita Swadehin, an L.A.-based educator, storyteller, activist, and consultant who testified against Attorney General Jeff Sessions in Congress in January. Our resource fair will offer a unique opportunity to connect with resources to help you stay sane, powerful, and healthy.

The event is free and parking is limited. Free lunch and beverages. Free valet service for 160 spots, available from 9am to 4pm, first come, first served.
