Women's Economic Summit - Detroit

Please join Women Organize Michigan and others to highlight women's participation in and concerns about economic issues in Michigan. The summit will highlight that women are concerned about the economy, that we are economic leaders, small business owners, breadwinners, and that things that are typically considered "women's issues" like paid family leave, equal pay, family planning, abortion access, equal protection under the law, etc are all economic issues, too!

Speakers include:

Senator Elizabeth Warren
Senator Debbie Stabenow
Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence
Congresswoman Debbie Dingell
Gretchen Whitmer, Gubernatorial Candidate
Michigan Progressive Women’s Caucus
Lisa Cook, MSU Economics Professor
Danielle Atkinson, Mothering Justice
