It’s that time of year again feminists! The 7th annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference is coming up fast. It’s happening on March 12th-14th at the George Washington University in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. There, hundreds of young feminist activists will come together to learn from influential feminist activists, as well as to meet with other young feminists and discuss important women’s issues such as abortion and birth control access, the environment, LGBT rights, and the economy.
The first two days of the conference will be filled with exciting town hall meetings and workshops, including a regional caucus where groups will meet with others in their region to address issues specific to their area of the country. Then on Monday, March 14th, the conference will host a Congressional Visit Day where students will have the opportunity to put their skills into action by speaking with your representatives about the issues that matter to them the most. It’s an opportunity and experience you don’t want to miss!
The end of Early Bird registration is quickly approaching. Register by February 1st to get the discounted rates of $20 for individuals and $15 for groups of 5 or more. After Feb 1st, the registration will be $30 for individuals and $25 for groups. We are also offering a special discount rate of $15 for returning conference members, and attendance is free for all GW students.
In addition, we will be offering prizes for the three largest delegations who recruit the most members to attend the conference. Prizes will include feminist goodies such as “This is What a Feminist Looks Like” tote bags, T-shirts, and more!
So RECRUIT your student groups to meet us in Washington, DC for an unforgettable experience!
Hope to see you there!
