East Coast Conference

Last summer, at the Feminist Majority Foundation’s Feminist Leadership Institute, several key students leaders from universities nationwide participated in an intensive 4-day leadership and reproductive rights conference in Washington D.C. Inspired by their weekend in D.C., several of these leaders are now organizing a conference of their own where feminist activists can share ideas, network and host guest speakers.

The Northeast Regional Conference is scheduled for the weekend of Feb 16-18, 2001 and will be held at Connecticut College in New London, CT. The regional conference, “Mobilizing Towards Activism,” is co-sponsored by the Connecticut College Gender and Women’s Studies Department. The key note speaker for the conference is the Reverend Barry Lynn, who spoke about the radical rights during Expo 2000, and there will be a special performance by Ruth Behar and two other performers.
