Our conference will feature some well-known speakers and exciting activities, events, and exhibits. We would love to have you participate in our conference and recharge with some “Vitamin F – Feminism and Fun”!
It is our pleasure to announce that our Friday morning keynote speaker will be Laura Brown, whose career as a feminist therapist and her classic publications on that topic are perfectly suited for our theme: Gold, Bold and More to Be Told. We are also excited to announce that Jennifer Freyd, whose Bold work on Institutional and Interpersonal Betrayal is nationally recognized, will be a member of a plenary panel on Saturday morning. She will be joined by youth activist Reza Clifton of Girls Rock RI and a third panelist TBA.
The conference will feature some of the most popular events that we had in 2009, including the Kim Trusty Band at the Saturday Night Dance. We will also include some new features such as an interactive Photo Activist Project and Feminist Karaoke on Friday night. Exhibits and sessions will highlight AWP’s 50-year history and there will be birthday cake for the celebration!. This is a wonderful opportunity for people who have served on the Implementation Collective and longtime AWP members to reunite and to meet AWP’s next generation!
