Empowerment Summit 2018

An all-day convention for students learn about their identity, learn about self-care strategies, and share their perspectives on society. This year's focus is on the intersectionality of race—how we are connected and how that connectedness plays out in society. If you are interested in attending, please sign up (the sign-up link will be provided soon). Food will be provided.
