Kellogg Foundation. Most recently, she co-chaired Michigan State University’s efforts to develop a five-year institutional strategic plan to address relationship violence and sexual misconduct.

Please join us for our one-day Feminist Camp NOLA!
It is your front-row seat to feminist work, activism, and action beyond classroom theories.
Our camps are designed so that campers explore the landscape of feminist work, learn about themselves, and start envisioning what their feminist futures might look like. We introduce campers to fellow feminists who get sh*t done: by working for non-profits, volunteering, creating art, organizing, protesting, running businesses, and translating theory into action. With these connections and inspiration, Feminist Campers leave with a renewed sense of direction and the confidence to make the next move.
Feminist Camp believes in empowering feminists to visualize and pursue their goals. We do this by: 

Focusing our sessions on conversations, not top-down sessions where the "experts" are the only ones talking.

Getting you in front of leading researchers, activists, thinkers, and artists in the field and facilitating meaningful connections.

Offering post-session support in developing an activist or academic action plan to leverage your Camp experience in your home communities.

Encouraging each member of our globe-spanning alumni network to step up as feminist leaders by offering benefits such as scholarships to other conferences, organizing opportunities, job search assistance, and more.

RSVP to reserve your spot and receive an Eventbrite link.
