Presented by Katy Otto, a community activist in DC

This workshop will consist of open discussion about the history of what women and their allies have done to create change through their activism throughout history. We will brainstorm as a group about problems feminists face in their communities, issues we are addressing, and how to do so from a feminist perspective and organizing process. This will be interactive and focused on helping build a feminist activist toolkit for addressing community issues, and well as working to redefine the meaning of "direct action" to include feminist goals and concerns.

Katy Otto is an Adult Facilitator of the Girls' Advisory Board (GAB), a youth led division of The Empower Program, a gender violence prevention organization. She is also a member of WATTS, co-organizer of the Visions in Feminism conference, and a past organizer of Ladyfest DC. Katy also co-runs Exotic Fever Records, an independent record label, with two other women. The label focuses on art and music as a community development tool. She has been putting on events with Positive Force DC, a youth activist and social change group, for 7 years, including benefit shows for local nonprofits.
