Bitter Brown Femmes To Open 3rd ¡Presente! Conference at UCR


Bitter Brown Femmes will open the 3rd ¡Presente! Conference at UCR on Friday, March 1, 2019. 


Bitter Brown Femmes is a podcast hosted by Ruben (Queer Xicano Chisme) and Cassandra (Xicanisma) that tackles social, political, emotional, and community issues. It was born of a necessity to take the Latinx/Chicanx community dialogue beyond mere identity empowerment and feel good/comedic fluff (that although, have their place, oversaturate social media) and into a realm that is critical of identity and society while advocating for marginalized peoples.

"We also aim to disrupt liberal complacency in systems of oppression by living up to our motto of: Dismantling Shit While Talking Shit!"

Doors open at 6pm for Poesía Peligrosa - an evening of poetry, artivismo, art gallery, and vendors presented with Teatro Quinto Sol and CSP's Semana de la Mujer. ¡Presente! Conference opening podcast with Bitter Brown Femmes at 7pm, open mic to follow.  
Friday's opening is FREE and open to the public. ASL interpretation provided. Free parking provided.

Saturday'
s conference events require an online application/registration, due February 8, 2019.

The California Endowment and the Highlander Empowerment Referendum help make the 3rd ¡Presente! Conference possible.
