In the lead-up to the 2020 United State of Women Summit, USOW is convening communities across the country and equipping women with the tools they need to keep fighting for gender equity.

Join us at the Galvanize Program in Sacramento, CA on Saturday, October 26th to learn about the work being done in California and across the country, as well as connect with local activists, community leaders, and Californians looking to make a difference. This includes a training session led by national experts on topics such as:

The day begins with an engagement fair and local marketplace for attendees to network with local organizations and partners before transitioning to a high-energy mainstage session. The afternoon has attendees break into tracks to in-depth and skill-based trainings. Please note that when selecting your Galvanize ticket, you are also selecting your breakout track. Attendees will only be able to attend one training.

The cost to attend the Galvanize Program is $50. Scholarships are available and will be awarded on a rolling basis. Please click here to apply!

Attendees will be responsible for their own housing and transportation.
