You can now register to participate in the 2015 Women’s Freedom Conference!!
On October 25, 2015, the Women’s Freedom Conference will amplify the unique voices and experiences of underrepresented women who have been disenfranchised beyond gender alone– women of color whose identities are intersectional and whose womanhood is shaped and defined along those intersections. The mission of the conference is to center Women of Color– our success, our concerns, our work, our activism, and our existence as vital contributors to making the world a better place.
