Check this out:

12-1:15 KIDS LIBERATION WORKSHOP: Strategies for allies and caretakers- This roundtable discussion will explore the ways we can parent in feminist, sex-positive, anti-authoritarian ways. How do we talk with kids about race, class, gender, ability, age, consent, capitalist consumer culture? How do we model critical thinking, resistance to gendered parent roles and traditional family structures? How do strategies of liberation look different with babies, young children, and teens? And how can childfree people be effective allies to parents and caretakers?

1:15-1:25 Poetry reading by Phoenix. A piece commissioned for the 2012 SF Walk Against Rape.

1:25-1:45 Brinicle: Icy Finger of Death- Solo, experimental ambient viola performance.

1:45-3 LADY SHRED SESSION by SF Skate Like a Girl: Skate Like a Girl SF is an all volunteer run organization that aims to empower girls and women through skateboarding. We are all-inclusive, all ages and abilities community. We seek to combat social injustice and oppression through connecting with each other, the communities we live in, and the world at large! Throughout the year we host monthly skate dates, free skateboard clinics, participate in community events (ex:Walk Against Rape SF), and participate in skate events local and beyond. In opposition to the male-dominated culture of skateboarding, our goal is create a supportive and inclusive environment where participants feel comfortable to try something new, meet friends and join a community of like-minded skaters.

3-3:30 Dorian Finch: Synth/Dream/Folk music

3:30-4:45 WOMEN AND CYCLING by Grease Mamas: Grease Mamas is a safe space workshop for women, womyn and womyn identified persons to come learn about bikes. The workshop covers topics surrounding how and where to lock your bike, laws, how to ride comfortably (bike fitting, clothes), issues women can face while cycling and basic mechanics.
