In Solidarity is More Than a Conference

In Solidarity is a national convening of young leaders, advocates, social service professionals, community-based organizations, and policymakers. This gathering includes a variety of opportunities to engage, learn, and connect:

  • Intensive deep-dive learning sessions featuring presentations by leaders and experts on critical and urgent topics
  • Interactive innovation in motion sessions sharing creative models and ideas for programming, community organizing, communication, and policy reform from folks’ on-the-ground work in communities
  • A self-care room curated by Harriet’s Apothecary
  • Dynamic training opportunities through pre-conference intensives
  • An un-exhibit hall curated to celebrate the culture, art, and entrepreneurship of girls, women, and gender nonconforming youth

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.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Looking Back at In Solidarity 2017


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.
