Celebrate International Women's Day at Hip Circle!
Celebrate International Women's Day 2020 with the Hip Circle Community on Sunday, March 8th from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm!
International Women's Day is Sunday, March 8th and the theme for 2020 is #EachforEqual. (Read more about this theme here.) At Hip Circle, we would like to invite people of all genders to join us for a powerful speaking, dinner, and silent auction event to celebrate women, challenge stereotypes, and benefit women in the Evanston/Rogers Park community with your support.
- Sunday, March 8, 2020 from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
- Hip Circle Empowerment Center: 727 Howard Street, Evanston, IL
- Please dress in casual attire to participate in a belly dance experience
There is a new metered parking lot at 717 Howard St or metered self-park anywhere along Howard Street.
The presenting speaker at #EachforEqual is Heather 'Byrd' Roberts, a Chicago-based poet, performer, teaching artist, and author. Her first chapbook, 'Mahogany: A Love Letter To Black,' was published in 2016. Byrd’s work focuses on the intersectionality between form and freedom. She uses her experiences as a black woman in a variety of spaces to shed light on issues of privilege, love, and familial relationships. Her work unlocks the opportunity for invisible voices to be heard.
All attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in a Belly Dance experience, led by Malik Turley, the Executive Director of Hip Circle Empowerment Center.
