National SweatFree Summit 2010
Over November 5-7, 2010, the National SweatFree Summit brought together leaders of sweatfree campaigns, representatives of allied organizations, international participants, and community members, including youth, in Olympia, Washington. The conference was hosted by Sweatfree Northwest, SweatFree Communities’ regional affiliate, which achieved the victories of both Seattle and Olympia joining the Sweatfree Purchasing Consortium within a week of the conference. Highlights of the conference included a briefing at the State Capitol and featured speakers from Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. Check out the report capturing content from most of the sessions during the weekend.
We are deeply grateful to our co-sponsors who enabled us to make the conference affordable and provide travel scholarships to low-income organizers from around the country. Check out the work of our sponsors by clicking the links below!
