Beyond Pink is a one-day summit and training for girl*-serving advocates and professionals who work in systems including schools, youth development, child welfare, juvenile justice, health, mental health and housing. There are two tracks: Training and Advocacy, that will help you create supportive environments, policies and practices. This year, the Training track will build upon your knowledge of girl-centered practices and teach practical skills that you can bring back to your agency. The Advocacy track will be a working meeting to drive momentum on policy priorities for the upcoming legislative session. In addition to the tracks, there will be roundtable discussions lead by subject matter experts on topics such as Developing Girl-centered Service Models, Ending Detention for Status Offenses and Youth Homelessness. Advocacy and direct service folks from the same organization are encouraged to attend as a team.
Also, join us in the evening for our inaugural Beyond Happy Hour from 5p-7p. At this event, you will have more time to connect with professionals from around Washington, bid on fabulous silent auction items and learn more about how to engage with our Coalition. We will also present Gender Justice Champion Awards to state Senator Jeannie Darneille and Representative Noel Frame for their steadfast policy advocacy to improve the landscape for WA state girls. Light hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served. Ages 21+ only.
