CARE National Conference in Washington, DC - CARE

CARE National Conference

Three CARE Action advocates smile in front of Capitol Hill. One of them holds a sign that says,

Each year, CARE advocates congregate in Washington, DC, to learn how to effect change at the CARE National Conference. The conference was virtual in 2020, and we are excited to reconvene in person in June 2022!

Women across the U.S. and the world have mobilized with increased energy and strength – for greater political representation, equal opportunity and pay, and against sexual harassment and violence. The U.S. has a unique and powerful role to play in advancing gender equality globally. In 2020, you joined us to create a just and equal world for all. Your voice matters.

At the 2020 CARE Virtual Summit, passionate advocates learned about the latest policy issues affecting women and girls around the world and heard from speakers like Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, Representatives Susan Brooks and Grace Meng, and more.
