Third Annual Women's Empowerment Conference
Claiming Space, Making Space
The Women's Empowerment Conference (WE Con) is the signature event of the Women's Community Center. WE Con 2016 will be a two-day event featuring workshops, panel discussions, a Women of Color Maker Fair, and an Opening Night showcase featuring various performers and speakers. Historically, patterns of marginalization have greatly affected feminist spaces, even as they strive for equality and justice. Certain voices and experiences are heard and valued while other 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.
