Join us for an evening of inspiration and support at THE event on Saturday, November 10 at the Uptown Theater, with iconic feminist and keynote speaker, Gloria Steinem as she talks about her life's work advocating for reproductive freedom and women's rights.

Following Gloria's talk will be a special performance of music from the 1960s and 1970s by Jane Doe Revue, an all-female rock orchestra, to commemorate this special evening.
