We hope you will join us for our 16th Annual Ambrose Women for Social Justice Conference "War and Peace: Gender and Justice" to be held in the Rogalski Center ballroom, on Tuesday, September 24. The goal of the conference is to give participants the opportunity to use gender as a lens to discuss issues of war and peace and to give them tools to seek justice locally and globally. The keynote address will be given at 2 p.m. in the Rogalski Center by Leymah Gbowee, Liberian Peace activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner. 

Seating will be limited at the workshops and keynote address, so we ask that you register on our website. Registration will be available at .
