JULY 28th 2018 @ NOON
28 Julio @ Water Tower
We’ll march, protest, chant, laugh, sing, speak out and listen to one another as we talk about the realities of living inside rape culture and build a community to fight it!
This year’s intentions:
-Bringing support to the human that was arrested at last year’s Slutwalk Chicago…Lee. Addressing transphobia and HIV stigma.
-Moving through space aware of our rights and avoiding arrest*
*there is no guarantee ever that someone will not be arrested due to the legacy of police brutality in the US
-Centering the most vulnerable and marginalized survivors which include sex workers, trans and non-binary folks, & POC.
-Building community by continuing the tradition of making public space for survivors, and engaging in our annual speak-out after the walk
-Media attention for addressing rape culture
Endorsing groups include:
Gay Liberation Network
SWOP: Sex Workers Outreach Project Chicago
Justice for Alisha Walker Defense Campaign

A REMINDER TO ALL: SlutWalk Chicago 2018 is a radically inclusive space. Victim-blaming, ableism, body-shaming, slut-shaming, whorephobia, queerphobia, transphobia, racism, classism, misogyny, body shaming, fatphobia, and general hatefulness in ANY form will NOT BE TOLERATED. We stand with sex workers and all workers who have to struggle against abuse, discrimination, sexual harassment or violence on the job.
Email us to get involved* firstname.lastname@example.org

*we need volunteers as this event is not sponsored and 100% DIY!
