Who should attend NYFLC?
Our National Young Feminist Leadership Conference has a history of bringing together college and high school students, recent graduates, and faculty and staff supporters, and we heavily encourage that our Feminist Campus groups attend this year’s conference. There’s more strength in numbers!
Is the venue accessible?

How can this conference help me on campus?
The goal of our annual conference is emboldening and preparing young feminists to become the social and political leaders of our generation. Attendees who are members of a Feminist Campus group will learn specific skills to strengthen and grow their organization and organize campaigns, and all attendees will have the opportunity to attend workshops related to direct action campaigns and gain deeper knowledge about feminist issues. Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to build connections with feminists from across the country and learn directly from one another.
What is included in the registration fee?
- Two days of workshops, panels, trainings, and general assemblies featuring feminist leaders and activists
- Registration for Congressional Visit Day, in which we engage directly with our representatives on Capitol Hill
- Conference materials, fact sheets, and toolkits to mobilize on your campus
- Breakfast on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday mornings
- Fun events (like a feminist dance party), and the opportunity to make new memories and connections with other young feminists
Are scholarships available?
We help activists attend our conference on a case-by-case basis. While we can’t guarantee assistance, we do have funds available for Feminist Campus-affiliated student organizations to bring their group to the conference. Email us at [email protected] and we’ll work one-on-one with you to bring your feminist group to NYFLC.
We also encourage individuals and groups hoping to check out our fundraising page for ideas and tips on how to get your group to DC!
When should I arrive at the conference?
The conference begins on Saturday morning and will last through Sunday, with our Congressional Advocacy Day scheduled for Monday morning. Attendees traveling from out of state are encouraged to arrive Friday night before the first day of the conference to ensure they don’t miss the morning activities.
What should I wear?
Short answer: whatever you want! We want conference-goers to feel comfortable and like themselves. If that means business casual? Go for it. A feminist t-shirt and jeans? Great. Dress up or dress down because no matter what, you are what a feminist looks like.
If you’re joining us for Congressional Visit Day on Capitol Hill, aim for business casual to business professional (i.e. a suit or slacks/business skirt and a professional top).
