About the Congress

We are excited to share information for the 3rd Women's Congress for Future Generations. This year's themes are Climate, Health, and Justice. We are back with another opportunity to convene and grow in our connectedness and in our commitment to future generations. Come join us as we gather around the Sacred Circle and deepen our commitment to Mother Earth. We commit to seeing “water and earth as living entities” and to seeing each other as interrelated beings we care for and protect.

In addition to this year's focus on Climate, Health, and Justice, the Congress will also serve as an opportunity to build the “Beloved Community” as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called it.  We are committed to healing the wounds among and between us, to hearing each other’s stories and to finding a way forward together as told to us by the Anishinaabe in the 7th Fire Prophecy. All of our traditions, and certainly Indigenous people, carry the stories and prophecies of this time.  As we work to heal our relationships with Mother Earth and with each other, the 8th Fire will be lit.  At that time love, peace, sisterhood, and brotherhood will come to pass.
