femex Fall 2016 Class Info Sessions
Join us for the Fall 2016 session of femex – a class where participants have the opportunity to learn and grow by sharing their lived experiences. femex classes strive to be a safe and intentional environment where we can discuss topics including power & privilege, gender, consent, body image, communication, sexual practices, relationships, and more – all issues that impact the way we experience the world. We have held femex in the DC community since 2009 and have reached over 600 folks in the area. femex is a space for women, genderqueer, trans folks, and people of other gender identities.
- Attending an Info Session (or femexposure) is highly recommended, but not mandatory in order to submit an application for the Fall Session.
During all info sessions, facilitators will go over important dates, review the course syllabus and answer any questions you have about the class.
You will also get to meet past participants who will share their experiences.
You are welcome to drop in when you are available, and do not need to stay for the whole time.
*femexposure is a special in-depth info session where you'll get a taste of what a femex class is actually like. Participants will dive into activities and discussions that simulate the femex class experience. *This session runs as a workshop from 6:30- 8:00 pm. Wednesday, July 27. Participants should arrive by 6:15pm.
Timeline: The Fall 2016 Session of femex classes is scheduled to begin the week of August 22nd, 2016 and run through mid-December. Classes run 1x per week (on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays) for approximately 3 hours for 16 weeks.
Class Capacity: femex is an all-volunteer run organization. While we would love to accept all who apply, but our current capacity allows us to run approximately 4 classes per session. If we are unable to accommodate you this session we encourage you to stay engaged by signing up for updates here.
