Womxn Rise Up – Fall 2019

As issues like sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, and the growing debate over reproductive justice receive increased attention in the news, the stories of womxn working tirelessly to address them are often lost.

This fall, the University YMCA’s Friday Forum explores how inspiring women leaders are addressing not just issues that disproportionately affect womxn but also a myriad of the most pressing social and environmental issues in our communities. Join us as we celebrate the creativity, passion and impact of womxn working for progressive change.

The fall series will take place on Fridays from September 13 through November 15.  Lectures will feature individuals, programs, and initiatives who will address topics ranging from affordable housing to sexual violence. October 18 – Speaking Up against Prison Censorship: How and Why We Formed the Freedom to Learn Campaign featuring Rebecca Ginsburg, Education Justice Project
