Our goal is to help bring the Chicago non-monogamy community together across all the lines that divide us - age, gender, race, class, location, ability, configuration, label, and all of the other categories which house us. This one-day conference provides a space for attendees to discuss topics pertinent to being non-monogamous, to expand their understandings of their own relationships, and to get to know each other as members of a diverse community seeking intersectional understanding and inclusion.
We operate from the realization that the personal is political.
We believe that in order to create a healthy community that can attain these goals of inclusion and understanding, we must actively work to provide safe spaces and to give voice to marginalized peoples within the non-monogamy community.
CNMC is Hosted by The Relationship Equality Foundation, Inc.’s (REF), whose purpose is to provide outreach, education, and support for those involved in or seeking relationships with non-traditional structures, and education and outreach to the general public about these relationships.
