“Cultivating Courageous Resisters”

The annual Sankofa Women’s Conference is about lifting up and empowering women and providing an opportunity for both healing and spiritual development. The conference brings together women of all ages, ethnicities and social classes to share their experiences, learn from one another and heal together. We bring world-class speakers and leading voices in their fields to shine a light on different aspects of women’s issues, share their own experiences and lead spiritually-driven healing for women in all stages of life.
