This incredible day includes a private film screening of award-winning documentary MissRepresentation, four different leadership tracks for high school girls, and a special track for strong women. Workshop topics focus on money matters, media literacy, health, body image, self defense, advocacy, and college. There is a complimentary breakfast and lunch. Lunch will feature local leaders and elected representatives. The conference will end with a panel on Strong Girls = Strong Community, featuring local leaders from the Latina Coalition YLTLP, Girl Scouts, and Girls for a Change. This panel will be moderated by Devanshi Patel (Stanford, 2014), star of MissRepresentation.

We encourage all high school girls, middle school girls (must be accompanied by an adult due to mature film content & topics covered), all mothers, and advocates for women and girls empowerment to participate.
