Let's practice safety ideas. * RESPECT GENDERS - this is a space to celebrate women and gender empowerment though all are welcome. So respect people's gender pronouns and don't assume people's gender, race, class or otherwise. At the same time, notice the space you are taking up and make room for those most marginalized * ALL AGES * SCENT & CHEMICAL FREE - We ask that people come scent free and chemical free, if you have questions about why and how, please contact us. Space is small and members of our community have chemical sensitivities that come from products that people put on their bodies to "smell good" but are actually toxic to us all. We are attempting to do this cultural change and trying support space change, we can not guarantee that space will be completely scent free, but we will actively engage our guests to come scent free before and as they arrive. * More information on Scent-free and chemical-free: http://www.peggymunson.com/mcs/fragrancefree.html * More information on Scent-free and chemical-free: http://www.brownstargirl.org/blog/fragrance-free-femme-of-colour-realness-draft-15 To volunteer email womewhorockproject@gmail.com or click https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZCh4Z2Y7h7Pgfp-gTz5YdLBia2LnzuDiF1KZ9SPwQjA/edit?usp=sharing
