Abstract

Throughout my twelve-week internship with the St. John's Status of Women Council, I held the Coordinator role on the FemFest Newfoundland and Labrador Organizing Committee. FemFest NL was a four-day community feminist festival, celebrating and highlight feminisms in Newfoundland and Labrador from August 25-28, 2016. Safety, accessibility, and inclusion were primary goals shaping my work on the FemFest NL Organizing committee, and my internship as a whole. I will report on the successes and challenges of these goals, of doing committee work, and of community organizing with a non-profit feminist organization.
