Be Bold NOW: A Day of Unity and Collaboration
Sun, June 4, 2017, 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM PDT
Join Seattle NOW and Women's March on Washington at BE BOLD NOW: A Day of Unity and Collaboration.
Be Bold NOW brings together art, film, music, food, networking and dozens of local nonprofits and women-owned businesses - to engage and educate attendees - providing them with inspiration and opportunities to create positive change and further their activism.
This is an all-day event (12pm-6pm) and you can come at any time throughout the day to meet the non-profits who will have info tables there - to learn more about their mission, work and how you can get invovled.
Check back for the timeline of events, so you can plan which break out session speaker panels you want to attend; documentary films (focusing on women's/girls issues) you want to screen and Activist In Training Workshops you want to participate in.
Be Bold NOW will feature:
*Over 75 local nonprofits who serve women and girls, people of color, immigrants, refugees, the LGBTQ community, the Environment and other marginalized groups. Many will provide opportunities for Direct Actions that you can do while at the event.
*Socially conscious for-profit, women-owned businesses
*Documentary Film Screenings
*Music and Spoken Word performances
*Pop-up Art Gallery
*Workshops on Lobbying and Activism
*Serenity Spa (for weary activists)

The objective of the event is to inspire attendees, to BE BOLD NOW and take action that truly creates change for women and girls and other marginalized groups here at home and around the world. You'll not only be inspired by the amazing organizations and people you'll meet; but you'll also learn how YOU can be BOLD NOW and take ACTION to create change.
