About Our Events Calendar

Our events calendar hand-curated, and is composed from many sources:

  • We subscribe to the automated calendar feed of any relevant activist group that provides one, as soon as we learn about it.
  • We subscribe to the events feed of our contributors' facebook pages, so that if any of us is invited to an event, it will come into our event approval queue. This makes the information available even to people who aren't on facebook (or are trying to become less dependent on it).
  • If we learn about an event through some other means, we add it to our calendar manually.

We do not automatically add all events that come to us from the automated feeds described above. Instead, the automated feeds add events to a moderation queue, for our contributors to review. That way, we can ensure that our calendar contains only events which align with our mission, and we ensure that the calendar is free of duplicates or listings which do not provide enough information for interested persons to get involved with.

We also annotate events listings with additional pertinent information, such as wheelchair accessibility, availability of transportation, availability of gender-neutral restrooms, and some allergy considerations.

All events are listed are free unless otherwise noted.
