This year will begin with a keynote speech by Feminista Jones on Friday night and will continue on Saturday with a day full of workshops. A detailed conference schedule is coming soon!

This year’s title is “Examining Intersections, Building Alliances.” We hope for this theme to encompass community building and a thorough examination of feminist history.

Our goals for the conference are: including the experiences and perspectives of both students and community members, prioritizing 101-level introductions to theories and movements, highlighting the complexities of identity in relation to the feminist and other activist communities, and to put a special emphasis on language and space.

There is a suggested donation is $15 (no one is turned away because of cost) and includes snacks at the reception on Friday, breakfast, lunch, and snacks on Saturday.

We are very excited about this year’s conference and we look forward to seeing you there!
