Women's March and Women’s March DC are excited to host the Power in Unity conference on May 6, 2017 at Trinity Washington University, 125 Michigan Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20017. Registration is required.  More information on facebook.

This all-day event focuses on reaching out to women in the metropolitan DC area who support the National Women's March organization and its advocacy efforts, including fair representation of DC residents in Congress and amplifying the voices of other national and local grassroots organizations as "boots on the ground" in our Nation's Capital. The agenda includes prominent keynote speakers in the morning and a choice of up to two workshops in the afternoon. The event is offering seven workshops that are based on the Women's March unity principles and two DC specific workshops. Please see below for workshop details; you will be prompted during registration to select the two workshops you'd like to attend. 

Space is limited for the afternoon workshop sessions. Organizers will update the event as popular sessions reach capacity.
