October 1-3, 2017

Over 100 women legislators and activists gathered in Washington, D.C. on October 1-3, 2017 to talk about advancing sustainable security for the 21st century while supporting sensible budget priorities. During the three day conference, participants attended fourteen sessions–ranging from Pentagon spending to nuclear disarmament to communicating effectively and more–before taking to Capitol Hill to meet with their representatives and recommend sound policy.
