Details & More Information:

It has been over six months since The Women’s March. Together, we have forged a powerful network of women, femmes and allies. Our network has flooded airports to protest the Muslim Ban, gone on strike for International Women’s Day, challenged the NRA, fought to save the ACA and so much more. The violence this weekend in Charlottesville shows exactly why we continue to resist – to stand together against hatred, bigotry and white supremacy in our communities.  It is time to channel the energy and activism of our network into tangible strategies and concrete wins in 2018. We are excited to announce The Women’s Convention, an inaugural conference that will bring thousands of women and femmes of all backgrounds to Detroit from October 27 – 29, 2017 for three days of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums and intersectional movement building. The Women’s Convention is the next wave in a political groundswell dedicated to the collective liberation of women and femmes of all races, ethnicities, ages, disabilities, sexual identities, gender expressions, immigration statuses, religious faiths, and economic statuses. The rise of the woman IS the rise of the nation.
