Please join us for the Women Organize Michigan Summit in Kalamazoo, MI! We will be having speakers and organizations who are working on moving Michigan forward, and fighting against the forces that would drag us backwards and into oblivion. As always, there will be child care provided, please indicate the number of children who will need care. (If you have an infant in arms, you don't need to register them.) As always, there is no cost to attend, but we strongly encourage a $10 contribution to help cover costs. We also STRONGLY encourage giving more than $10 to help cover those who cannot give financially. We will announce our line up of speakers as the event draws closer.

As we launch our 2016-17 contract campaign this fall, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Risa L. Lieberwitz, Professor of Labor and Employment Law at Cornell University and General Counsel of the American Association of University Professors. Dr. Lieberwitz will speak on "The History, Uses, and Abuses of Title IX." A recent report by the AAUP suggests that the current interpretation, implementation, and enforcement of Title IX can actually exacerbate inequities on campus. Dr. Lieberwitz, chair of the committee that authored the AAUP report, will discuss tensions between current interpretations of Title IX and the academic freedom essential for campus life to thrive. She will also share recommendations for how best to address the problem of campus sexual assault and harassment while also protecting academic freedom, free speech, and due process. THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
