Event Details


The women of Network NoVA present our second Women’s Summit to continue the grassroots momentum of building coalitions across the state to flip Virginia’s Congressional delegation blue in 2018. The Summit will feature opportunities to engage across all 11 Congressional Districts to connect our networks to be a FORCE to win votes, races, and hearts. Teamwork will be the key to strategizing to win elections across the state and beyond.

This amazing weekend event will feature speakers, workshops, an advocacy fair, gear shop, and most importantly, network opportunities. We'll examine what worked in Virginia, what didn’t, and what it’ll take to win big in 2018.
