Women's Empowerment Conference
The Women's Empowerment Conference (WE Con 2016) is a two-day event featuring workshops, panel discussions, a Women of Color Maker Fair, and an Opening Night showcase. There will be Spanish and youth panels & workshops. Historically, patterns of marginalization have greatly affected feminist spaces, even as they espouse notions of equality and justice. Certain women’s voices and experiences are heard and valued while other women’s voices and experiences are ignored or silenced. This year’s theme encourages us to not only claim the space that we have been denied, but to also do the work of moving back and making space for others.
WE Con 2016 strives to be a welcoming community event where women, girls, femmes, and those who care about them can share knowledge and insights, build community, and support each other's self-empowerment. #WECon2016
