Announcing the 2017 Women's Congress Nov 3-5, Minneapolis MN

The Women's Congress for Future Generations took place on November 3-5, 2017 in Minneapolis, MN. This year's themes were: Climate, Health and Justice. We had another opportunity to convene and grow in our connectedness and in our commitment to future generations. We gathered around the Sacred Circle and deepened our commitment to Mother Earth. We committed to seeing “water and earth as living entities” and to seeing each other as interrelated beings we care for and protect.

Our speakers this year included: Vien Truong, Dr. Dorceta Taylor, Rowen White, Joye Braun, Faith Spotted Eagle, Carolyn Raffensperger, Sharon Day and more.
