We are excited to share program information with you about the amazing speakers and opportunities you will experience at In Solidarity We Rise: Healing, Opportunity and Justice for Girls, October 11-13, 2017.

Now more than ever, we know that we must be unified in order to advance the needs and potential of girls and young women who, through no fault of their own, live on the margin of the American dream. But it’s not that simple. Why? Because divide and conquer is a very powerful force. Given this reality –In Solidarity has been created as more than a conference. It has been designed as an opportunity to connect, to be moved and energized, and to strategize together with young women as leaders for change. Check out some of our Amazing Speakers!

To that end In Solidarity will focus 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 will provide a diverse array of opportunities to learn and connect through Deep Dive Learning, Innovation in Motion and A Call to Solidarity sessions, along with Front Porch Conversations. In addition, the Self Care Center and Un–Exhibit Hall will be open to provide opportunities for respite and inspiration throughout the event.

Join us in Washington, DC this October to make the statement that divide and conquer will not work this time!
