Call for Workshop Proposals
2011 National NOW Conference
Prepare and submit a workshop proposal for the 2011 National NOW Conference, Daring to Dream: Building a Feminist Future, June 24 - 26, in Tampa, Fla. Submissions are due April 26, so don't delay.
The conference will feature exciting and energizing sessions that reflect a theme of envisioning a better future for women and their families.
Now, more than ever, with conservative attacks on vital social programs, deep cuts in state budgets and de-funding of reproductive health care programs, we need to strengthen the progressive feminist voice. NOW activists and allies are encouraged to propose workshops that help paint a picture of a society that embraces feminist values of equality, fairness, opportunity, non-violence and empowerment. More information on the conference theme can be found online.
Because we are facing the most serious threats ever to reproductive rights, we emphasize the need for workshop proposals that address what is happening in Congress and state legislatures and how NOW activists are fighting back. In addition, we welcome proposals on skill-building and practical topics such as activist recruitment, running an effective chapter meeting and using social media to change the world.
Submit your workshop proposals online by April 26.
Remember to register to attend the conference, and book your hotel room NOW!
See you in Tampa!
