The Levana Gender Advocacy Centre Presents: A Radical Body Positivity Conference


Our campus and the Kingston community is engaging in important work and conversations about anti-racism and anti-oppression. As members of this campus and community, we know that our work is far from over and for that reason we want to make space to talk about issues of race, ableism, transmisogyny, transphobia, homophobia, classism, xenophobia, islamophobia, anti-indigenous racism, anti-black racism, fatphobia, and all other axes of oppression as intrinsically tied to radical body positivityPlease join us on January 19th, 2019 from 9AM to 5PM at the Tett Centre for a Radical Body Positivity Conference. We hope to see you there and look forward to taking up space and starting this conversation with you all.

Sincerely,

The Board Members of the LGAC
