ABOUT:
The F-Word Conference showcases student-organized research and presentations as well as community collaboration across activist and academic disciplines. The conference provides a venue for feminist scholars, students, and community members to learn each other’s skills, knowledges, and experiences. The F-Word Conference is a day long conference, and includes presentations from students, community organization workshop, free meals and keynote speeches.

MISSION STATEMENT:
The F-Word Conference will provide a safe, anti-oppressive space for students, faculty and activists to collaborate and share their ideas in order to create meaningful dialogue and establish an academic and activist community. The F-Word Conference will create an environment where attendees can bridge the gap between theory and practice to become more effective, responsible and create scholars and activists.
