Upcoming Events: Youth and Reproductive Justice Leadership Conferences You Should Know About

For all of those young feminists and reproductive justice advocates out there, we wanted to share two great conference opportunities on the horizon:
  • In advance of Sister Song's 3rd annual, Let's Talk About Sex Conference, our fantastic reproductive justice grantee has put out a call for workshop proposals. This year's conference theme is "Love, Legislation and Leadership" and organizers are looking for workshops that "highlight cutting edge visions that address issues on sex, sexuality, and sexual pleasure." The deadline for submissions is February 11, 2011; the conference itself is set to take place July 14 - 17 in Miami Beach, FL. Get your proposals in before it's too late!

  • The 7th Annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference, sponsored by the Feminist Majority Foundation, will take place March 12-14, 2011 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. This year's event will focus on the impact of young women's advocacy on both domestic and global issues, and will conclude with a day of visits with Members of Congress. Early bird registration ($20 per person) closes on February 1 (that's today!); regular registration ($30 pp) will remain open through March 9, 2011.
