In less than two weeks, WAM!NYC will be bringing together media makers and media activists interested in intersectionality and gender justice for the eighth annual WAM!NYC conference on June 17, 2017 at Barnard College.

Join WAM!NYC and sponsors Women, Action, and the Media, Barnard Center for Research on Women, AppNexus, NewsGuild of New York, The Indypendent, and The Feminist Press for a full day of panels and conversing with like-minded journalists, activists and creative thinkers working in various crevices of social justice issues.

As the term “fake news” infects the country’s vernacular, our aim is to reassure people that cold, hard facts are as important as ever. Our main questions: What, as strong and independent media makers, can we learn from each other? And how can we collaborate as we move forward?

Keynote speakers will include activist Erika Andiola, professor Salamishah Tillet, and a conversation with journalist Alison Stewart. All tickets include bagel breakfast, lunch, post-conference reception, a ticket for our raffle (with awesome prizes from Verso Books, Democracy Now!, Babeland, and others), and more!

Reserve your spot now!

See you there,

WAM!NYC and the WAM! Team

Gen44 is happy to announce that B.o.B will be our featured musical guest for our National Gen44 Summit Kick Off Concert with President Obama.  If you are a fan of his first two hit singles “Airplanes” and “Nothin’ On You,” you will want to be there to see him perform LIVE at DAR Constitution Hall on September 30th in Washington, DC from 6 to 9 pm.

What better way to kick off our Gen44 Summit than with the breakout artist of 2010. B.o.B’s album, “The Adventures of Bobby Ray,” debuted #1 on the Billboard 200, making him only the 13th male solo artist to have a debut album at #1 on its first week. B.o.B has received nominations for his album and singles by BET and MTV along with many others. B.o.B will soon join Eminem, Drake, Kanye West, Linkin Park, Paramore and Usher as a performer at the 2010 MTV VMAs.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join us at our first National Gen44 Kick Off Concert and Summit. The concert is only the beginning of what will be a three-day gathering of the next generation of leaders. Engaging our generation means empowering the President and this Gen44 Summit marks the start of something new. It marks the first time this has been done here at the DNC, so set the precedent and join us in DC!

Summit Packages and Individual Kick Off Concert Tickets are available now. Don’t wait to get your seat.
