The Women's Convention, Hosted by Women's March


  • Cobo Center 1 Washington Blvd Detroit MI 48226 (map)

 

REGISTER TO ATTEND The Women's Convention HERE.

The Women’s Convention will bring thousands of women, femmes and our allies of all backgrounds to Detroit from October 27-29th, 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, abilities, sexual identities, gender expressions, immigration statuses, religious faiths, and economic statuses.

The Women’s Convention is the beginning of a political groundswell, showing that the rise of the woman IS the rise of the nation.

Please note: Women's March is currently raising funds to provide discounted admission and scholarships to the Women's Convention, with priority given to people from the local Detroit area, queer people of color and other disproportionately underrepresented communities. It is our hope to be able to provide financial access to the convention to as many people as possible.

Even if you can't join us in Detroit, you can help support someone who otherwise would not have the same opportunity to join us. Click the link here to donate to the Women's Convention Scholarship Fund today.
