It’s time to find your place in #theResistance, and we are here to help. On May 19, Seattle Womxn Marching Forward will host Community Convergence, an event for nonprofits to find volunteers and volunteers to find purpose.

Tickets at Brown Paper Tickets:

Meet representatives from nearly 30 different area nonprofits, hear a variety of speakers discuss pressing topics, and finally break out into small groups for in-depth discussion and community organizing.

Many of these organizations marched with you on January 21, and now they need your help to handle immense workloads and new responsibility. It is our goal to match your skills with the orgs that need them, to energize you and empower you, and to remind you what we are all fighting for.
