Empowerment Conference Workshop Proposals
On November 18, 2017 the Women’s Resource and Research Center will be hosting the Empowerment Conference: "What's Love Got to Do With It?". This conference aims to center the ways in which love can serve as a radical form of existence and resistance. The 2017 Empowerment Conference aims to engage participants in learning about self-empowerment, self-love, and community care.

The WRRC invites you to submit proposals exploring the theme of love as a foundation for liberation and transformation.

The planning committee is looking for workshops that explore topics of 1) self-love, self-care, and self-awareness and 2) community empowerment, community care, and activism.

The WRRC's goal is to center experiences of those with marginalized intersecting socio/political identities, in particular, experiences that center people of color, people with disabilities and those with queer, trans, non-binary, undocumented, identities and/or experiences.

Do you have an idea for a workshop? Please use our goals for the conference as a guideline for the workshop format. However, we will consider any workshop that serves to the purposes of the conference theme.

Please submit workshop proposals by Friday, October 27th by 11:59 PM.
