Who can come to the conference?
- The target audience for the conference is college students who are involved in progressive issues such as (but not limited to) globalization, slavery and human trafficking, the environment, women's rights, human rights, and peace. Anyone who is interested in these issues is welcome to attend, however, and we will have participants from many age groups in attendance. The main goal of this conference is to educate and mobilize young people on a range of foreign policy issues and create a supportive network for progressive US foreign policy, we want participants to take the knowledge they gain from the conference back to their campus and turn it into activism.
Will you have tabling at the conference for groups or organizations?
- Yes, we will have some tabling space available. Find out more about size, pricing, and registration.
How do I register?
What does it cost to register?
Is there a sliding scale for the registration fee? Do you have scholarships or any other type of funding for the conference?
- No. Since we are only charging a $35 registration fee, we do not have the funding to offer any scholarships to the conference, but we do have ideas for fundraising.
I tried to register online, but I got an error message. Am I registered or should I try again?
- Getting an error page does not necessarily mean that your registration did not go through. If you do not receive a confirmation email within one hour of completing this form, then you are not registered. If this happens you can either try again or call the Global Conference Team toll free at 1-866-444-FMLA (3652).
What is the dress code for the conference?
- Saturday and Sunday (and Friday if you are attending the FLI) you can wear casual clothing (jeans are fine). If you are going to be participating in the Congressional Visit Day you will need to wear business casual on that day (khakis, a collared shirt or other nice top, etc.)
