SATURDAY- Feminist Activist Day at SOAS


Please arrive at SOAS between 10 and 10:30am to register at the desk in the foyer and sign up for your workshops- get there EARLY as for some of them there is limited places due to the nature of the work you will be doing.

LUNCHTIME GIG- In the JCR between 1 and 2 enjoy the musical talents of Bini, Louisa and Surianne and eat cake, pakora and Ugandan food provided by the Detainee support group. The food is £4 for everything, but DO feel free to empty your pockets as all proceeds go to the women who will be doing the cooking, and being asylum seekers it is their only source of income :)

Looking forward to meeting you all and hearing your ideas, lets plan some inspiring actions to get the year off to a energised vibrant start!

Call Elly on 07595672964 with any last minute queries
