Why WOOP?

Our movements are failing to effectively address the root causes of xenophobia, racism, heterosexism and misogyny in Europe. Too often, power dynamics in social justice groups reinforce the systems that fuel oppression, continuing to organise within the realms of patriarchy and white supremacy.

Effective movements need transformative leaders who can break through oppressive cultures. Trans*, Non-Binary* and Cis Women Colour already do this work because of our unique position of navigating life at the multiple intersections; our stories, experiences, histories, analysis and fortitude offer movements sincerity, vision and a lived political experience rarely felt by mainstream organisers. This programme recognises and supports the work that is already being done.
