The Feminist Majority Foundation’s National Young Feminist Leadership Conference is returning to D.C. after four years. NYFLC hosts hundreds of high school and college students for an unforgettable weekend in Arlington, Va., right outside of Washington D.C. It’s the perfect place to learn about current political issues, hear from inspirational leaders, and meet fellow feminist students. This year’s NYFLC will be March 23-25, and applications are now open.
NYFLC is a weekend full of learning from fellow feminists—some who have committed their lives to this work, and others who are emerging leaders. NYFLC is a chance to recognize that we are a part of something big, a community of activists working for justice all around the country. With the 2024 election fast approaching, it is more important than ever for us to connect with passionate students across the country.
Join us for days jam-packed with general assemblies featuring national speakers and panels diving deep into feminist issues. Each day there will be speakers, panels and workshops starting at 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. ET.
Ticket pricing is $35 for student during this Early Bird period. For groups of five or more, ticket prices drop to $30 each. (Early bird pricing will end in mid-February, and the individual price will increase to $50 per registrant.)
Here’s an overview of the conference schedule:
Saturday, March 23
Sunday, March 24
On Saturday and Sunday of NYFLC, you’ll learn about current issues and gain new organizing tactics and strategies to mobilize on your campus and in your community. Panels will cover topics ranging from protecting reproductive rights and securing reproductive freedom, to passing the Equal Rights Amendment, to ending gender apartheid.
Monday, March 25
The third day of NYFLC is dedicated to providing students with hands-on experience on Capitol Hill. After learning about a range of feminist issues facing our country and communities, students take their knowledge, power and voices to Capitol Hill for a Congressional Advocacy Day where they meet with lawmakers and legislative aides from their home states and districts.
The Feminist Majority Foundation—publisher of Ms.—is proud to be an intergenerational movement that works to build and uplift student leaders through the Feminist Campus program, one of the largest pro-choice feminist student networks in the country. Feminist Campus works to help educate, activate and mobilize young feminists into action—and one way we do this is through our student activist conference.
Being at a conference with hundreds of other young activists is an indescribable feeling. It’s the recognition that we are a part of something big, a community of dedicated students working for justice across the country and the world. It’s a reminder that young people are powerful beyond measure. And it’s the energy we need to carry our movement through the 2024 election and beyond.
Register now for an action-packed weekend—and pass this message along to feminist students you know.
U.S. democracy is at a dangerous inflection point—from the demise of abortion rights, to a lack of pay equity and parental leave, to skyrocketing maternal mortality, and attacks on trans health. Left unchecked, these crises will lead to wider gaps in political participation and representation. For 50 years, Ms. has been forging feminist journalism—reporting, rebelling and truth-telling from the front-lines, championing the Equal Rights Amendment, and centering the stories of those most impacted. With all that’s at stake for equality, we are redoubling our commitment for the next 50 years. In turn, we need your help, Support Ms. today with a donation—any amount that is meaningful to you. For as little as $5 each month, you’ll receive the print magazine along with our e-newsletters, action alerts, and invitations to Ms. Studios events and podcasts. We are grateful for your loyalty and ferocity.
