The Womxn Changing the World BYOB Meetup is all about holding space for womxn (cis, trans and non-binary) to connect more wholly, in ways that benefit the world around us. So whether you're already working hard to create a better community, looking for like-minded womxn to collaborate with or simply seeking inspiration (and a bit of hope), you should join us!
Our goal is to keep all Just A Girl events free for everyone. That means this is a BYOB (bring your own brunch) event. So just grab your favorite breakfast burrito and head on over for some literal soul food!
The Womxn Changing the World BYOB Meetup is part of Just A Girl - the digital hub of mental health and women's empowerment. Just A Girl's goal is to build a global sisterhood of solutions and support through honest conversations around the emotions and experiences weighing heavy on the hearts of women and girls globally.
