What Does InSol Do? Support – Challenge – Education – Change – Self-care

Standard

We aim to create a space of solidarity for womyn of colour, where we can learn and develop together. Our meetings provide a supportive space to speak about our experiences as womyn of colour, engage in constructive criticism, and challenge ourselves to expand our understanding of anti-oppression practices.

At the same time we also work to challenge the oppressive structures around us. We engage in this work through educational endeavours (for example, by attending conferences or organizing speakers’ events) and by acting more directly for change, such as through campaigns. We also identify as allies….

We also make sure to take time for fun self-care as a group. We believe in the importance of having fun while acting to make the world around us a better place and taking care of ourselves while we do it.
