Join Community United Against Violence (CUAV) to celebrate the resilience and creativity of the Bay Area's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities. From April 14-17, in Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco, the Bay Area's oldest LGBTQ anti-violence organization, CUAV, will host its second annual safetyfest, 4 days of free workshops, parties, healing, and culture to end all forms of violence. "For so many LGBTQ people, abuse, violence, poverty, imprisonment, and deportation are the norm, not the exception," said CUAV advocate M. Carolina Morales. "Real LGBTQ safety is something we create together, and safetyfest 2011 is a testament to our collective power to do just that."
Festival attendees can choose from a range of topics and activities to learn about--from creative writing to self-defense, acupuncture to theater, mural-making to healthy relationships from 10am-6pm, Friday at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley and Saturday at Everett Middle School in SF’s Mission District.
