We are headed into the recording studio in early 2018 to begin recording new material. Amongst the songs we will record is "Avalanche." Get a sneak peak of the acoustic trio version live from Eddie's Attic on the past southern tour!
We are thrilled to be guests at this year's Out & Equal Summit at the Philadelphia Convention Center from Oct 9-Oct 12. Not only will we be performing at the Opening Brunch on Tuesday morning at 11am, we will also present our very own Girls Rising Breakout Panel Discussion with panel moderator and Out&Equal Board member, Amy Hanneman. After that, Kristen will speak on a featured panel discussion about Intersectionality, where she will bring her unique perspective on ways in which sexuality, gender, race, and other identity categories shaped Antigone Rising's experiences as well as how AR has shared those experiences with people around the world through Girls Rising Outreach programs. And finally, Kristen, Cathy and Nini will spend a few days on the convention exhibit floor talking to corporations about how Girls Rising can align with them to bring about change in the coming year!
It will be a busy week. We suggest you follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook so you don't miss a thing!
