The Women’s Equality Coalition promotes women’s health and safety, economic opportunity, and democratic participation in order to ensure all Virginia women are able to fully participate in social, economic, and political life.
The Summit will be chock full of exciting guest speakers, interactive panel discussions, workshops, and training activities. Additionally, the Summit is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the status of women in Virginia and to network with women from across the region. Our panel discussions will include topics such as economic justice, reproductive justice, and our training will teach you the basics of organizing as well as how to tell your personal story, or how to interact with the press.
Our keynote speaker Loretta Ross is the co-founder of Sister Song, and she is a nationally-recognized trainer on using the transformative power of Reproductive Justice to build a Human Rights movement that includes everyone. Ms. Ross is an expert on women’s issues, hate groups, racism and intolerance, human rights, and violence against women. Her work focuses on the intersectionality of social justice issues and how this affects social change and service delivery in all movements.
