For more than 40 years, gender violence has been the focus of U.S. feminist activism.

Where are we headed now?

The CONVERGE! conference will bring together survivors, activists, lawyers, service providers, and academics to reconsider the dominant U.S. responses to gender violence, to build capacity for political mobilization and reform, to share innovative approaches to gender violence, and to promote cross-fertilization and collaboration. Join the CONVERGE! conversation to build a transformative political agenda to refocus U.S. priorities in ways that better address the intersecting inequalities that create and maintain gender violence.

 

Sincerely,

CONVERGE! Co-Chairs
Donna Coker, University of Miami School of Law
Marcia Olivo, Miami Worker’s Center Sisterhood of Survivors
Leigh Goodmark, Co-Director, Center on Applied Feminism, University of Baltimore School of Law
