      EVENT DETAILS
      Beyond Pink: Lifting Up Local Expertise

      Registration has opened for the Justice for Girls Coalition’s annual summit, held on November 13th 2019 at the Pacific Tower in Seattle. Beyond Pink: Lifting Up Local Expertise 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 training, 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. The event is hosted by the Justice for Girls Coalition of Washington State, a nonprofit with state-wide reach, that helps girls in adverse situations have meaningful futures.

      Please also join us for our inaugural ‘Beyond Happy Hour’ from 5-7p. At this event you will have more time to continue your engagement and advocacy conversations while supporting the Coalition mission. 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.
