Description


Join Cause the Effect Chicago for our third annual Young Feminist Conference!

Feminists of all ages are welcomed and encouraged to attend our FREE conference to learn more about the issues that affect us HERE and NOW, and how our collective voices and actions can create the change we want to see in our communities, our city, and our country.

Please note: There is no fee to attend the Young Feminist Conference but we're partnering with the Chicago Period Project to collect menstrual products. If Conference attendees would like to participate in the optional drive, we ask that they bring a box of tampons or pads with them to the Conference.
