In Solidarity We Rise

Thank you!!
Our 2017 Conference was an overwhelming success!


The leadership & experiences of youth participants under the age of 25 created a space that prioritized girls’ voices and placed their experiences as the starting point for creating change.


Convened together to advance the needs and potential of girls and young women who live at the margins of the American dream. Participants built and strengthened relationships & alliances in the movement
for girls.


Participants explored diverse and innovative ways to support health, economic security and civic engagement for girls and young women that are creative, intersectional and two or multigenerational.


From Deep Dive Learning to Innovation In Motion to Front Porch Conversations to Plenary Sessions – each learning opportunity was designed to bring participants together to learn, strategize and connect.

In Solidarity is More Than a Conference

Core to In Solidarity is the leadership and engagement of girls and young women, and the use of a variety of approaches to learning, strategizing and connecting that are creative, intersectional, and two or multigenerational.

In Solidarity focuses on:

  • HEALING – Understanding the root causes of trauma and discovering new pathways to well being.
  • OPPORTUNITY – Exploring diverse and innovative ways to support health, economic security and civic engagement for girls.
  • JUSTICE – Catalyzing and strengthening the justice reform for girls’ movement.

In Solidarity provides a diverse array of opportunities to learn and connect through Deep Dive Learning and Innovation in Motion sessions, along with Front Porch Conversations. In addition the Self Care Room and the Un Exhibit Hall provides opportunities for respite and inspiration throughout the event.
