Being Fearless at Omega Institute: Action in a Time of Disruption

As we look to understand our way forward, it is difficult to find common ground when positions have become so oppositional and hardened. As our ability to hear each other is compressed into the 140 characters of a tweet, and news has become spin—how do we find ways to enter profound and necessary dialogue to address the urgent questions before us?

This critical conference, guided by an extraordinary group of courageous and insightful teachers, thinkers, and community leaders, brings together innovative thought, deeply felt activism, and contemplative wisdom as a foundation to navigate the times in which we live. Through stories from the front lines of change and panel discussions, along with interactive sessions, engaging conversations, community experience, and mindfulness practice, we explore the way ahead.

Whether you are a concerned citizen, business leader, educator, student, designer, builder, social activist, or politician, this gathering will inform and inspire you to take further action in your community.

Join us and step into a deep dialog engaging the path forward and exposing the strength and hope we all share for the future.

Feminist Press: And the Spirit Moved Them @ Book Culture

“Let me suggest, then, that the opening Chapter go farther back than 1848. . . . From the time of the first Convention on Women—in New York 1837—the battle began.” — Lucretia Mott, to Elizabeth Cady Stanton

A decade prior to the Seneca Falls Convention, black and white women joined together at the 1837 Anti-Slavery Convention in the first instance of political organizing by American women, for American women.

United by their determination to reshape a society that told women to ignore the mechanisms of power, these pioneers converged abolitionism and women’s rights. Incited by “holy indignation,” they believed it was their God-given duty to challenge both slavery and patriarchy. Although the convention was written out of history largely for both its religious and interracial character, these women created a blueprint for an intersectional feminism that was centuries ahead of its time.

Part historical investigation, part personal memoir, Hunt traces how her research into nineteenth-century organizing led her to become one of the most significant philanthropists in modern history. Hunt’s journey to confront her position of power meant taking control of an oil fortune, being deployed on her behalf but without her knowledge, and acknowledging the feminist faith animating her life’s work.

Now What? Town Hall: Got A Girl Crush

The Women's March mobilized millions around equality and r-e-s-p-e-c-t.

We were there and wanted to keep the momentum going (in a non-overwhelming way), and as a first step, we compiled an online resource for those who asked the question: now what?

Next, we wanted to create an actionable, physical extension of the town hall-style convos we're having and hearing all over social media where questions like the following have consistently been asked:

  • How do we recognize and validate both individual and large community struggles while empathizing and supporting each other effectively?
  • How can we learn the language of our rights, and harness the power of organizing within the restrictive, post-fact political climate?
  • How do we transform frustration/exhaustion/burnout into real, empowering action?

Join us for a day comprised of impassioned panels at New Women Space followed by Q&As and a networking hour after with local organizations and panelists for folks to visit afterward for how to get further involved.

PANEL 1 from 1:30 to 2:30pm: Intersectional Feminism Can’t Thrive in the Ice Age of Infighting

• Ashton Applewhite | Writer, Manifesto Against Ageism

• Melissa Wong + Sandra Hong | Co-founders of New Women Space

• Cydney Gray | Youth Programs Manager at Carnegie Hall
 

PANEL 2 from 3:00 to 4:00pm: How to Turn Exhaustion into Empowerment: Advice from Active Folks

• Kat Green | Managing Director, Lady Parts Justice

• Jamia Wilson | Activist/Storyteller/Media Maker

• Aliya Allen | Women of Color for Progress

PANEL 3 from 4:30 to 5:30pm: I'm Not Always Politically Correct, but I'm Politically Charged

• Jewel Cadet | Chapter Co-Chair of the Black Youth Project 100 + Program Manager, Youth & Community Empowerment for The Center for Anti-Violence Education

• Maria Figueira | Finance & Opps Chair, Rally & Rise

• Prachi Rao | Project and Communications Associate, Women's Environment & Development Organization

5:30 to 7:00pm

Actionable Networking Hour(ish): Socialize and meet other attendees, write postcards with Rally + Rise, catch live screenprinting from Kingsland Printing and learn more about different local organizations and panelists for how to get further involved/active.

THANK YOU to our sponsor issuu — a modern media company and curator of creativity platform that supports professional-level digital publications in areas of passion. "We are proud to support Now What? and invite you to visit us at issuu.com."

OWN IT Summit 2017: Georgetown University

OWN IT is a truly unique and disruptive women's leadership organization geared at inspiring the next generation of young women. At OWN IT, we believe leadership should be accessible, inclusive, and diverse. We create summits and opportunities to make that true and to train the next generation of (badass) female leaders. It was founded and built by undergraduate students at Georgetown University in 2013. OWN IT is bridging the gap between female leaders of the 21st century and the millennials who admire them, by shaking up the women's leadership arena and producing accessible events for college-age women. The inaugural OWN IT Summit was held in April, 2014 in Washington, D.C. at Georgetown University, bringing together over 400 attendees, 30 nationally recognized speakers, and hundreds of owning it moments. The second annual OWN IT Summit took place at Georgetown University on Saturday, March 28th, 2015. We had 800 attendees, 78 speakers, 45 breakout sessions, hundreds of people watching online via livestream through Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, 65 volunteers, 5 mainstage conversations, 20 partners, and 10 hours of being the top Twitter trend in D.C.  

In addition to our fourth annual Summit that takes place at Georgetown, happening on March 18, 2017, we are hosting Summits at many other American universities.

Tuesday 7:00 pm February 28, 2017
The New York Society for Ethical Culture
2 West 64th Street (at CPW)
New York, New York
 

It Takes Courage to Love Well.

Throughout her life, author and co-founder of the Omega Institute, Elizabeth Lesser has sought understanding about what it means to be true to oneself and at the same time, truly connected to the ones we love. Elizabeth Lesser a modern day ‘Anam Cara’, soul-friend in the Irish language, knows how to love well.

She has an unusual blend of heart and intelligence, is a mystic and a warrior and is a very wise human being, who provides profound insights on the universal themes of friendship, love, forgiveness and spirituality. Elizabeth’s new book Marrow: A Love Story is a mesmerizing and courageous memoir: the story of two sisters uncovering the depth of their love through the life-and-death experience of a bone marrow transplant.

Don’t miss this magical evening as Elizabeth answers the complex question about what it really means to love—honestly, generously, humorously and authentically. She will also share the deeper transformational lessons that can be learned from difficult moments. 

Lesser will be joined by TED PRIZE storyteller, Jamia Wilson.

What You Will Learn

  • Insights into how to authentically communicate with people you love
  • How to have the difficult conversations with the people you love
  • How to develop stronger relationships with people you love
  • How to say the ‘unsayable’ between 2 people
  • How to be your best in the presence of evil
  • How to stand up for your moral integrity with love
  • You don't have to wait for a life-or-death situation to clean up the relationships that matter

Out beyond the ideas of wrong doing and right doing there is a field I will meet you there. - Rumi

Tech Feminist Workshop w/ Ladies Learning Code

With less than 16% of Wikipedia editors identifying as female, Wikipedia has been criticized for hosting less extensive articles about women or topics important to women. This lack of female editors on Wikipedia creates many of the same challenges we see for technology as a whole. How can we ensure articles are relevant for women and that women are represented equally in history?

We need more women participating as editors! On February 15th, we are proud to be hosting a feminist edit-a-thon in partnership with the eQuality Project & OCTEVAW to bring together our incredible community in this city and bring some much-needed new knowledge to Wikipedia.


No experience necessary with editing or wikipedia but, you will need to bring a laptop (or let us know if you’ll need access to an extra one – we can facilitate that too!). All feminists & genders welcome!

 

[6:30P-7:30PM] OPEN PARTICIPATION IS POWER: THE MOVEMENT TO END ONLINE HARASSMENT

Incredible Feminist Activist Jamia Wilson leads a feminist panel discussion among fellow advocates and community members—about using technology & gender as a platform to inspire action in preventing gender based violence & the movement to end online harassment!
