About the event
This 90-minute session, set amidst playful floats and the comfort of 86-degree waters, provides a sanctuary for merfolk to discuss and collaborate on the current ripples within our community. Problem-solving and advocacy planning are even better when there are pool floats involved!
We'll dive deep into issues such as the struggle for mermaid-friendly pools, bullying and gatekeeping, and the need for improved safety education, among others. We encourage attendees to bring additional concerns to the forefront—there's room in the pool for every voice.
- Float Therapy Corners: Engage in open dialogue about shared challenges and experiences in specialized areas.
- Community Pledge Wall: Commit to actionable change and leave your mark on our collective promise to better the mermaiding world.
- Underwater 4 All Ally Network: Connect with a robust network of allies, offering support and access to resources to empower our community's efforts.
Sponsored by Underwater 4 All, this session isn't just about airing grievances—it's about pooling our passion to initiate tangible waves of change. So bring your tails and/or tales, and let's turn the tides together in a flow of positive activism. Mermaid tails optional.
