About this Event

The She Can, We Can: Women in Politics conference is entirely student organized. The conference will provide an opportunity for students in grades 8 through 12 to hear from women who are actively involved in government and who could inspire them to get involved, as well. The slogan “She Can. We Can,” perfectly summarizes the goal of the event: to provide role models for students who aspire to have their voices heard as voters or future politicians. The speaking program will begin at 9am on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at North Smithfield High School and will include Professor Jo-Ann Hart, RI Senator Jessica de la Cruz, and RI Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea. Interwoven with the speaking program will be various leadership building activities. The program will conclude at 12:30 with a networking lunch where students will have the opportunity to mingle with each other and the program speakers. Throughout the day, students will have the opportunity to register or pre-register to vote for the 2020 election. Follow the event Instagram page @shecan.wecan.wip for updates before the event!
