You helped us send women to the Women’s March, now we need your help again! This October, the Women’s March is calling another convening of women. The Women’s Convention in Detroit, from October 27 – 29, 2017, is a weekend of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums and intersectional movement building to continue the preparation going into the 2018 midterm elections.
The official theme of the Women’s Convention, with Congresswoman Waters’ blessing, is Reclaiming Our Time, an homage to women everywhere who take leadership in the face of adversity.
The Women’s Convention anticipates more than 5,000 women- first time activists and movement leaders, rising political stars that reflect our nation’s changing demographics, and thousands of women who’ve organized sister marches, huddles, rallies and resistance actions, large and small, since January 2017. The cost to attend, however, including Convention registration, air fare, and hotel is prohibitive. That is why we need your help!
Women’s March Connecticut is raising funds to send women to the Women’s Convention. We feel strongly that a diversity of women from Connecticut should be represented. The Women’s Convention is the beginning of a political groundswell, showing that the rise of the woman IS the rise of the nation.
Not since 1977, the one and only National Women’s Conference, have women gathered in this venue from all 50 states and territories. Now, 40 years later, women will come together to be inspired and motivated, make new connections, skills and strategies for working towards collective liberation for women of all races, ethnicities, ages, disabilities, sexual identities, gender expressions, immigration statuses, religious faiths, and economic statuses.
Please support our efforts to send a diverse representation of Connecticut activists and organizers to the Women’s Convention!
