Three Days of Learning, Connection and Action

Since 2003, CARE has gathered thousands of advocates, supporters, major donors, corporate partners, members of Congress, Congressional staff and members of the Diplomatic Corps in Washington, D.C. for our annual conference.  Now in its 14th year, the CARE National Conference will once again bring dedicated individuals together for three days of learning, connection and action. This powerful group of individuals who attend our conference will once again raise their collective voices to bring awareness to vital issues that have helped empower women and girls in the poorest communities around the world.
