Women’s March: The Women’s Convention
10/27/2017 - 10/29/2017 (All Day)
1 Washington Blvd., Detroit, MI, 48226
We are the leaders we have been waiting for. The Women’s Convention will bring thousands of women, femmes and our allies of all backgrounds to Detroit from October 27 – 29, 2017, for a weekend of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums and intersectional movement building to continue the preparation going into the 2018 midterm elections.
Tapping into the power of women in leadership as the fundamental, grassroots force for change, the Women’s Convention will bring together first time activists and movement leaders, rising political stars that reflect our nation’s changing demographics, and thousands of women who’ve organized sister marches, huddles, rallies and resistance actions, large and small, since January 2017.
Participants will leave inspired and motivated, with new connections, skills and strategies for working towards collective liberation for women of all races, ethnicities, ages, disabilities, sexual identities, gender expressions, immigration statuses, religious faiths, and economic statuses.
Shelly will be addressing attendees on the topic: “Self-Care Is An Act of Resistance: Shifting the Fight-or-Flight Response to Empathy-or-Action Response.”
