Event description

Description

In city halls, state capitols, and the Chambers of Congress, elected officials make decisions about our bodies, lives, and futures...without listening to our voices. Together, we are changing that. Together, we are making our voices heard in the rooms where decisions are made and influencing the very legislative decisions that impact our daily lives.

Join Platform for our annual Convention this July 20 to 22nd in Washington, DC. Throughout the Convention, you will learn more about the policies that matter to you, meet fellow young women-identified and femme leaders who share your passion, and have the opportunity to hold your lawmakers accountable—face-to-face.

You have a voice that deserves to be heard and the power to flip the world on its head. We are your platform for change.

Quick Recap

As we roll out speakers and panels in the coming days, here are some of last year's highlights: Delegates heard from keynote speaker Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry; gained critical insight from policy experts during panels including End Racial Profiling of Women & Girls of Color and Sexual Violence Prevention; identified pieces of legislation they wanted to advance and issue areas to center on the Platform Pledge; and lobbied more than 30 congressional offices on behalf of the Platform Pledge. We left Convention feeling energized and ready to continue the work toward justice and equality. We're still feeling that energy and are ready to reconvene this July.


We are committed to making this Convention accessible for all who wish to attend. Contact us to learn more about scholarship opportunities.
