Leadership Alliance Activists Attend GenderPAC’s National Conference in DC

Last week, students nationwide came together in DC for the Gender Public Advocacy Coalition’s (GenderPAC) second National Conference on Gender (NCG). Hundreds of activists from 30 states across the country and students from over 36 campuses attended the three-day event that included dozens of workshops on feminism, race, class, and transgender issues. The Feminist Majority was among the many co-sponsors of the event and staff had the opportunity to meet with students while tabling throughout the conference. Students were able to share their ideas and learn from others during discussions and workshops. According to INDIANA UNIVERSITY AT BLOOMINGTON Leadership Alliance activist Patrick Kinsman, “All of this will feed down to the FMLA… we’re going to take the issue of gender stereotypes back to Bloomington.” GenderPAC works to end discrimination and violence caused by gender stereotypes, and works to change public attitudes, educate elected officials, and expand legal rights.
