NYFLC is a three-day summit that brings together hundreds of students and young feminist activists from across the country. Rubi Garcia, Kathleen Mallari, and Parisa Bradshaw all attended the conference in D.C. At the conference, discussions take place on critical feminist issues such as anti-violence work, abortion access, racial justice, immigrant rights, queer liberation, health justice and so much more. NYFLC is more than an issue-based conference - it's an activist training that strives to teach students skills and organizing strategies as well such as how to communicate with the media, how to plan an action, etc.). The panels vary from detailed discussions on specific policies to conversations on the organizing tactics behind specific wins to strategies of resistance, such as storytelling. At the conference, students could participate in an Action Room, where they could engage in direct actions and gather to meet one another and build community as well. And, on the last day, the conference hosted a Congressional Advocacy Day, where students are first trained on how to effectively hold their elected officials accountable and then engage in lobbying on the Hill.Spring 2019
