Women the world over are challenging the status quo—they’re rising up, breaking out, and pushing boundaries.

Join TEDxFSCJWomen on Thursday, December 6, 2018, at FSCJ's Downtown Campus for a simulcast event—featuring such luminaries as Tarana Burke and Dolores Huerta direct from the TEDWomen2018 conference in Palm Springs!  97.9 KISSFM’s Catalina Alers-Alers will emcee this simulcast event.

Then join Melissa Ross, host of WJCT’s First Coast Connect, as she moderates a local panel of experts, who will address the theme, “Speak out!,” and explore issues of fear, sexual violence, and survival.

  • Vicky Basra, Senior Vice President, Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center

  • Kristin Keen, Founder and President, Rethreaded
