Southern Girls Convention Mobilized Hundreds of Activists in the South

Last month, AUBURN UNIVERSITY Leadership Alliance activist Charles Johnson and fellow feminist activists Claire Rumore and Ailecia Ruscin organized the third annual Southern Girls Convention in Auburn, Alabama. The conference brought together over 500 feminist activists from all over the country for a weekend of discussion, action, and entertainment devoted to ending violence against women, protecting abortion access, and fighting oppression based on gender, race, sexuality, economic class, and more. The conference offered regional organizing caucuses and over 60 information-packed peer workshops on topics including women in the South, reproductive rights, and movement-building.
