What is the Southern Girls Convention?

The Southern Girls Convention is an annual grassroots meeting of social justice activists devoted to empowering women and girls in theSouth, and discussing Southern culture, views and stereotypes of the South, and the struggle for social justice. Each year's convention is hosted by a different Southern community and facilitated by local organizers who manage fundraising, facilities, entertainment, the website, and more. The participants themselves facilitate workshops and discussions, and share ideas, learn new skills, and have fun as a community.

This year's SGC invites activists from across the country to meet in Athens, Georgia. SGC will be focused around participant-led discussions, workshops, and lectures. Other eventswill include a Southern women's art show, musical entertainment, and tables for people and organizationsto network and raise awareness on issues related to feminism, progressive politics, and the South. Please feel free to bring video projects, zines, writing, and anything you are interested in sharing to the convention.
