You’re on notice – get your feminist group excited about FMF’s 8th annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference! The conference is the weekend of March 31- April 2, 2012 at the Hilton Crystal City in Arlington, VA, just outside of the nation’s capitol. Early online registration opens Monday, December 5 on our website, so get your head counts lined up this month!
The registration fee includes the weekend conference and Monday Capitol Hill Day.
Early Bird Registration begins December 5, 2011.
Registration fees link will be posted on feministcampus.org shortly.
The conference is your chance to meet 500 student activists from across the country, most of whom are leading their feminist groups on campus. Network with our speakers, who are feminist members of Congress, nonprofit leaders, doctors, lawyers, bloggers, and students! We’ll share the latest developments in feminist political activism around domestic and global women’s health, reproductive rights, voter participation, gender-based violence, and more. And we want you to be ready to share your tips with other activists for creating a hardcore feminist group on campus and beyond.
Workshops will be all day Saturday, March 31, and Sunday, April 1, and this will give you tons of info to bring to your members of Congress at our Capitol Hill visit day Monday, April 2. We are hard at work organizing workshops and inviting speakers, and will let you know as soon as we are able to start releasing the juicy details. But start planning the logistics for registration and getting to the DC area – look at transportation, lodging, and who your members of Congress are.
