NWSA Activist Scholarship

NWSA Activist Scholarship
With this conference we seek to embrace both the activist roots of feminist scholarship and the contemporary intersectional and trans-national feminist leadership that seeks to build a better future for us all.  The goal of this conference is to build stronger bridges between activists and scholars. Those of us working in the Academy need to be in closer dialogue with young organizers attempting to put theory into practice.  Conversely, organizers could benefit from scholarship that helps to frame and contextualize the work they are doing on the ground and the larger historical trajectory out of which it emerges. Toward this end, we created 17 travel scholarships to facilitate the robust participation of a cohort of national feminist organizers working in the Movement for Black Lives. Thank you to our generous donors!
