Abolish the Family: A Manifesto for Care and Liberation by Sophie Lewis (2022)

February 5 @ 16:00 - 18:00

Our next read will be Abolish the Family: A Manifesto for Care and Liberation by Sophie Lewis.

It was published by Verso press just a few months ago and essentially asks what if we should and what if we could do better than the institution of the family? In this relatively short text Lewis stakes out a case for family abolition.

We will meet on the 5th February at 16:00 at the community kitchen de peper located inside OT301 (http://www.ot301.nl).

We’ll discuss the text for a couple of hours and then (for those who wish) enjoy a vegan meal (donation based).
If you want to join for dinner you need to call on the same day to reserve (0684781156) or you can sign up at the bar while you’re there.

You can buy the Ebook directly from the publisher (versobooks.com)
and the awesome Het Fort van Sjakoo in Amsterdam has one paperback listed as available, and offers that you can write to them to request that they order something for you (sjakoo.nl).

De peper has a ramp and a large toilet.
If you have access needs regarding the event, that you feel may not already be in place, please get in contact with us so that we can do our best to incorporate these.
We understand that it can be daunting to attend events where you don’t yet know anyone. If you feel worried or socially anxious about attending and would like to meet one of us first also reach out to us.
If you want to attend the session but money reasons make it difficult for you to get hold of the book we will try to help.

Like the FCA more generally we aim to be a harassment free space for everybody. If you are new to our meetings, or feel you need a refresher please read our code of conduct to find out what behaviors we hope for from you, and hold ourselves to in our sessions.

Looking forward to seeing you all!
