Pre-Conference on Thursday, October 25, 9-4:30
Theme: Sacred Activism
Sacred activism is a response to our deep concerns for the world — using compassion and wisdom we have attained as elders. In this full-day workshop, we will discover and cultivate our voices as elders in the public sphere – whether that is at our dining table, in a community meeting, or beyond. We will explore how to use our unique gifts and resources to create a more just and thriving world. Participants will be empowered with insight, resources and a diverse network of elder activists to mutually sustain our work and amplify our essential messages and concerns for the greater good.

Her website, Elder-Activists, supports elders to co-create their legacy and bring forth a just and thriving future for all.
