She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Solidarity is Fabulous! Building Lavender/Labor Alliances

When: Thursday, July 13, 7:30pm
Where: New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle
Cost: Free; dinner for $8.50 served at 6:30

Get inspired by a double-header historical look at how “unlikely” coalitions can be built around common interests.

• Starting off, a little-known half-hour documentary, All-Out! Dancing in Dulais, spotlighting Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM), a mainstay for an intensely fought 1984-85 mine strike in Wales.

• Next up: longtime queer activist Su Docekal, author of “On the Front-Lines of Lavender Labor History,” will tell how an unprecedented combination of LGBTQ militants and Teamsters came together in 1977 to fight union-busting and racist, homophobic practices at the Coors Brewing Co.

Join the discussion on how to build such efforts today. Everyone welcome.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
