The 6th Annual Women Who Rock (un)Conference will be held on April 7 and 8, 2016 at Heritage University. The annual (un)Conference is participant-driven and centered around issues of gender, race, class and sexuality. Our goal is to expand on “who” counts as women and “what” counts as rock. The (un)Conference includes dialogue about women, music and social justice; small group sessions; tradition and skills sharing workshops; music making; and children’s activities.
This year, Women Who Rock seeks to achieve our goal by focussing on creating opportunities for local, trans-national and trans-temporal through dialogue about Indigeneity, womanhood and maintaining connections to history through traditions. The National Public Radio, Latino USA radio show produced by Maria Hinojosa on the relationship between Latinos and Native Americans on the Yakama Reservation has been a source of inspiration for this conference.

The Women Who Rock (WWR) Community will celebrate our 5th anniversary on Saturday, March 7th, with the 2015 WWR unConference, an event where we strive to create a space for women to participate together in discussing ways for Rocking Media Justice. The 2015 WWR unConference will take place on Saturday, March 7th at Rainier Valley Cultural Center, featuring a moderated roundtable dedicated to solidarity within organizers, roundtable discussions with the community, a skills-share space, where attendees can float from booth to booth, collecting different methods for rocking media justice, a cypher, and a community-created altar.
