***Come to our first training on direct action and accountability!***

An experienced sister from London is coming up to give us two amazing trainings!

Join us as we figure out how to plan direct actions, and learn how to work through issues of accountability in our organisation using the principles of transformative justice.

A basic lunch will be provided, though lunch food donations are also welcome!

All skills and experience levels very welcome. All sisters old and new are welcome. Come and help us fight the violence of austerity.

We are meeting in the Nelson Hall at the MacDonald Road library. This is wheelchair accessible via a lift.

The meeting space is fully wheelchair accessible. We can support individuals with access-related costs, such as travel costs. Children are more than welcome at our meetings and we can either provide informal childcare on site, or help with childcare costs. This can all be arranged on the night, but if you can let us know in advance, that will help us to make sure we have everything in place.

*About sisters uncut*
Sisters Uncut is an intersectional, feminist group taking direct action to defend domestic and sexual violence services. We're organising information evenings, actions and reaching out to local communities. Come along and organise with us :)

*Gender Inclusion*
Our meetings are open to all women (trans, intersex and cis) and all nonbinary, agender and gender variant people. Self-definition is at the sole discretion of that individual. Our meetings and spaces are not open to people who identify solely or primarily as men. If you have any queries regarding our gender inclusion policy, please don’t hesitate to ask questions.
