The Summit for Women and Democracy

September 29

This landmark event will convene leaders from the nation’s most influential organizations working to advance gender equality in American democracy at an urgent time. The summit is invitation only, if you are interested in attending please email pelangovan@aitogether.org

Each session will be moderated by luminary thinkers and will focus not just on barriers but also on critical solutions and accelerators of progress. The goal is to articulate clear calls to action, funding, and collaboration to advance American democracy through the full and equal participation of women.

Following the summit, there will be a public program hosted by the LBJ Foundation, the 19th*, and AIT with extraordinary artists, leaders, and activists to be announced. The registration link for the public event will be released at a later date, and the event will be livestreamed across social media.
