Description

The Levana Gender Advocacy Centre is a student-funded Queen’s University organization committed to creating and nurturing a radical community of Kingston students and residents. Devoted to fighting gender oppression and advocating for broad ideas of gender empowerment for those of any or no gender, Levana operates on anti-oppressive practices. We are committed to confronting all forms of oppression and working to dismantle oppressive systems and hierarchies including patriarchy, racism, white supremacy, colonialism, classism, cissexism, heterosexism, and ableism. Levana exists for anyone in the Kingston community, regardless of whether or not they are Queen’s students. Levana aims to fulfill its mandate by: Organizing ongoing programming and actions to challenge systems of oppression (e.g. sexism, transphobia, etc.) and advocate for gender justice and diversity; Striving to provide a safer space for all people who experience gender oppression, and engaging in the creation and reclamation of space in Kingston and on the Queen’s University campus to allow individual and community expression; Providing confidential referrals to local organizations and resources; Serving as a point of connection between different feminist and gender organizations, groups, and initiatives at Queen’s University and in the Kingston community, supporting the work and people involved through funding, the use of resources, and space to meet and organize; Providing an alternative resource library and zine collection, open to the public, directed by membership contributions and requests.

Generated summary (experimental)

How can we create communities of care that can meet the needs of survivors of sexual violence and abuse?
We want to take this time to have a open, honest, and caring discussion on what survivors need after an assault, and how we as a campus community can support one another.
Given some recent events which openly condone transphobic, racist, and islamaphobic sentiments, LGAC and EQuIP have decided to cohost this event in order to foster and care for our community(s).
This event will take place in Dunning Hall, room 11.
