Austin feminists and allies, please allow me to cordially (OR NOT SO CORDIALLY IN ALL CAPS) invite you to tomorrow’s joint #ATXFEM/Lilith Fund tweet-up and happy hour!
Our first tweet-up, at which the #ATXFEM hashtag was born, was December 3, 2011 at Red House Pizza (RIP) and I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since a bunch of feminists gathered ’round to talk about activism, cats, and who-knows-what-else. Since then, we’ve met almost every month to convene with like-minded souls. It’s been really incredible, and I’ve met so many awesome activists, feminists, allies and new friends.
If you haven’t yet been to a tweet-up, let me encourage you to come out tomorrow to the Flying Saucer at 5 p.m., because not only will you get to meet the #ATXFEM crew (and become a part of it!) but you’ll get tons of information about the Lilith Fund, a vital organization that helps women access safe, legal abortions and does community outreach with regard to reproductive justice. Also, there will be coloring books and pub trivia with fabulous dollar store prizes.
Still apprehensive about meeting a bunch of strangers at the bar? Worried you won’t fit in if you don’t have Twitter? Let me assuage your fears.
