SAVE THE DATE!
It’s that time of year! When we get together and play the beautiful game how we want to see the world, eat, party, and build community with our Leftwing friends from all over. LeftWing DC Fútbol Club invites you to Copa Comunidad Labor Day 2018.
WHAT IS COPA COMUNIDAD?
Copa Comunidad is a 4-day gathering that brings together Leftwingers from various chapters and cities for a weekend of fútbol and festivities. Together we will grow our understanding of Leftwing as a community and movement space, learn about social justice and organizing work happening in DC, meet with good friends new and old, and of course play plenty of soccer!
WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?
Labor Day Weekend: August 31 — September 3, 2018
WHAT IS LEFTWING DC?
Leftwing DC is a space for decolonized, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic fútbol. We aim to use the beautiful game of soccer to tear down these internalized toxic forces and build community with the hope of transferring what we learn and relearn into the everyday world. Our fútbol recognizes that all of us need to grow and heal. Every game ends in 2-2, everyone touches the ball, everyone is essential to the play. Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience or skill level!
Our fútbol is POC-led and grounded in the knowledge that athletics often marginalize, exclude, and oppress those who do not identify as cis, straight, white, and/or men. We want to center those who are historically and continually excluded from competitive sports.
Leftwing is not a space for aggression or competition. It is a space for collaborating, supporting each other, and celebrating the successes of everyone on the field!
