CARE National Conference

05/21/2018 to 05/23/2018

2121 I St NW, Washington, DC 20009

Now is the time, the CARE National Conference is the place. Register today for the 2018 #CAREcon, where hundreds of people from around the world will meet in Washington, D.C. from May 21-23 to learn the basics of advocacy, strategize in workshops, network with other advocates and global citizens — all to help end poverty worldwide. There has never been a more critical moment to stand with people around the world to realize CARE’s goal: to stand firmly against the systems that marginalize women and girls and keep them in poverty, and to champion legislation that supports and protects them wherever they are. The three-day conference costs $50 for regular attendees and $25 for students — register at carecon.care.org. Additionally, CARE is hosting several complimentary events, including an opening plenary from former Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates who refused to defend the travel ban and Carla Hall, Chef and Co-Host of ABC’s “The Chew,” plus the Washington, D.C. premiere of the film Soufra.
