Event description


Get Centered: A Rapid-Response Slow-Down Day

Feeling stuck by constant crisis mode but still want to help out? Come slow down with community.

Like a hack-a-thon (teams! prizes! food! fun!) but not (go at your own pace! work on your own if teams are not your thing!), we’ll crowdsource collective brilliance to share resources with community, and fix up our maker space too.


  • Help make a QTPOC Rapid Response Health & Wellness resource guide

  • Help make a QTPOC Housing resource guide

  • Work on Peacock’s online presence to get these guides out to community: Build Instagram, Twitter, Facebook

  • Spruce up the space: sew curtains, tend to the plants, Marie Kondo our maker supplies, set up our podcasting studio

  • Extra stressed? Ask a Peacock to lead a guided meditation for you

Attendees - This event is for Queer Trans Black Indigenous People of Color, please respect the space and the community. Please RSVP so we can prep for the day.

Accessibility Info:


The event is free! We will have snacks, supplies for all of the above, and goodie bags!

The babies!:

The space isn’t kid-proofed, but you're welcome to bring your children; please send us a direct message and let us know at least 3 days in advance so we can prep, but we always have toys, coloring books, and other books for kids.

Wheelchair and scooter accessibility:

LOL is wheelchair-accessible including the bathroom, but there is no push-button on our front door. We leave the front door open for events except when safety issues come up, in which case safety team members are stationed at the front door to welcome you and open/close doors.


We ask attendees to use only fragrance-free products. Our paint, floors and cleaning products are zero-VOC and fragrance-free but smoke and fragrances come in sometimes; we run an air purifier at events. Please come fragrance-free; for info check out:


We have a separate room for folks who need a quieter / lower-stimulant space


Free street parking is available on 23rd Ave., E. 12th St. and International Blvd.


LOL is about 1 mile from Fruitvale BART.

AC Transit:

The 1 stops 1/2 block away at 23rd Ave. and International Blvd; the 40 stops about 2 blocks away at 23rd Ave. and Foothill Blvd. Get transit options here:
