Join us for a chance to continue the conversations focused on women’s progress and empowerment. How can we build an inclusive feminist movement that works for women of all colors and backgrounds? How can we set aside our own privileges and reclaim “feminism” for all women? How can we address the various issues without silencing voices? Let’s discuss real solutions and come up with plans to move forward, together.
