What we’re about

I decided to step out of my comfort zone and establish this group as part of my new year resolutions.

Hope to build a supportive and inclusive community for like minded people who are interested in reading feminism, post modernism, constructivism, and critical race theory.

All are welcome regardless of your race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, SES, career/vocation, age, and education, etc., as long as you are based in OC and adjacent area, and can attend in person or online regularly.

Basic community rules: be respectful to others esp. when they have different ideas; no personal name calling even when you disagree; stay open minded when you feel challenged, and engage in self reflection first before respond.

My current plan is to start with an online discussion session after the new year in early January, 2022, to see how many would be interested and to come up with a list of books that ppl want to read, then proceed from there. Still in search for a place for ppl to meet up and read in person, so accepting recommendations if you know a good place. Just comment under the post.

Will do a doodle for time and location later when I have a better idea.

Disclaimer: I'm no expert on this and I only have some knowledge, so there will be no "leaders" that lead the discussion. We are all peer learners and ppl can volunteer to be a moderator at a time.

Tentative plan:
Either a workday 7-9pm or a weekend 2-4pm.
First 1-1.5 hrs: read silently of the book of your choice;
Second 0.5-1 hrs: chat and discuss about anything you read and would like to share.

Still in search of a local place w/ good lighting, esp. when events happen/last after sunset. Ideally w/ a firepit since winter evenings can be chilly. Also would be better if it's a quieter spot w/ access to some casual snack/food/drink options.
