With the support of our school administration, the Riot Club will be hosting the second annual conference for high school women of color in the Bay Area. The Riot Club inspires young women of color to focus on the intersections of race and feminism. We created the Riot Conference hoping to bridge the disconnect of women of color at private independent schools in the Bay Area through a day of embrace and encouragement.
Our theme for the conference this year is “Experience, Expression, Empowerment.” The goal of our conference is to provide a space to empower and encourage young women of color to carry themselves with confidence and explore their passions. Our more immediate goal is to help break down barriers for female students of color that inhibit them from reaching their full potential. With the 2016 elections behind us, we recognize that there are extremely few women of color in leadership positions who can allow our voices to be heard. We're hoping that this conference will cultivate more women leaders of color, especially in high powered positions like President of the United States.
Our event will be held on March 17th, 2018 at 3065 Jackson Street, San Francisco CA 94115 .
Please donate to cover conference costs, such as meals, transportation costs, speakers, and other supplies. With your support, our team can ensure that this conference is the best it can be.
