Helping women overcome issues like poverty and abuse leads to education and leadership. And this can transform the world.
This is the idea behind the annual Care Conference, where artists, politicians, and thought leaders come together to talk about why helping women heals the world.
For the first time this year, the Care Conference will kick off with a yoga class with Off the Mat, Into the World’s Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling. With both groups focusing on grassroots social change, they are perfectly aligned.
“It’s going to be a great way to get participants energized and ready to take action on issues affecting girls and women around the world,” says CARE’s Sarah Moser.
The conference takes place on March 8-11th — in conjunction with International Women’s Day — and features appearances by Melinda Gates, Laura Bush, Judy Woodruff, India.Arie, Michael Franti, and others.
After their conference class, the dynamic Off The Mat trio will then teach an intensive called Yoga, Purpose & Action, at Washington D.C.’s Flow Yoga Center.
