Don’t Miss Secular Women Work!

I am incredibly excited to let you all know that this weekend I’ll be presenting a workshop on Accessibility 101 at the Secular Women Work conference in Minneapolis! I’m hoping to see some of your faces there, and there is still time to register if you’re going to be in the area.

From the Secular Women Work website:

“The Secular Women Work conference is a celebration of the work of female activists who create and run projects and communities in the secular movement. And there is no better way to honor their work than by using their expertise to help us all become better activists.

At Secular Women Work, you will find workshops: both hands-on exercises to develop your skills and facilitated group discussions where you can share challenges and solutions with other activists. You will find panels on specialist topics, with panelists who can help you broaden the horizons of your activism. And when you’re ready for a rest, you’ll find speakers who will entertain and inspire you with stories and lessons from their own work. In between it all, you’ll find a conference full of other activists who want to make a difference in the world.”

There will also be tons of other fantastic speakers and workshops beyond yours truly, and Skepchick’s very own Surly Amy helped their fundraising cause with donated art. Hope to see you there!
