About this Event

Planning is underway for the annual half-day Conference to explore topics of intersectional feminism, empowerment and activism with accomplished speakers, informative panels, engaging performances and action-oriented break-out sessions.

While this Conference is tailored to young feminists age 14-21, all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Lunch will be served at the close of the Conference.

This year, we're excited to feature several young feminists who are making their voices heard and inspiring others to effect change.
