The Women of Color Network, Inc. (WOCN) is excited to announce that we are hosting the 2015 National Call to Action Summit and Conference on May 20-22, 2015 at the Town and Country Resort and Conference Center in San Diego, CA!!!
Conference History: Call And Response
This National Summit and Conference is the result of over 25 national Call to Action Calls that began in April 2007 in response to the challenges that women of color advocates and activists faced in their violence against women programs. That call was responded to by over 700 women of color, male and mainstream advocates across the country who possesed a desire to make a difference. They wanted to make a difference in the lives of women of color advocates and activists and to create meaningful and lasting change in the anti-violence against women movement as a whole.
What We're Doing This Year
This year's gathering, “Coming Full Circle: Survivors and Communities of Color Leading the Way to Justice and Healing,” will explore the root causes of domestic and sexual violence, and examine how to support women of color leadership and aim for collective liberation in challenging racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, ageism and other forms of oppression and bias.
We will also look at the high profile cases around the country, discuss the implications for survivors of color and explore strategies to ensure collective liberation and healing. Your contribution will help us create a space for critical dialogue, important learning opportunities, and celebration! Check out our video from 2010!!!
