#RubyWooPilgrimage

Imagine a diverse group of 40 national-level evangelical women speakers, writers and leaders embarking on a three-day pilgrimage through the intersectional story of women's struggles for equality in the U.S.

From the origins of the early meeting in Seneca Falls to immigrants' struggles in New York City to what it looks like to be an ally in Philadelphia to the land where Harriet Tubman dreamed of freedom in Maryland to the office of the suffragists who won the 19th Amendment-- Washington DC...

Then imagine the last day of that pilgrimage on Capitol Hill--pressing our congressional representatives to fix the Voting Rights Act, fix our broken immigration system to protect women and families, and protect women fleeing domestic violence.

This is the #RubyWooPilgrimage.

Why RubyWoo?  RubyWoo is a metaphor--a symbol--of the God-ordained power that many evangelical women have been trained to hide.

In early May this year, 35 evangelical women leaders were randomly tagged into a Twitter cloud kicked off by a profound request tossed to the Twitterverse by speaker/author Diedra Riggs. Diedra asked: "What women leaders are you for?" By the end of the day 35 powerful evangelical women thought leaders were looped into a Twitter conversation. Halfway through the convo, Kathy Khang asked if anyone had heard of RubyWoo lipstick. Soon women chimed in from all over the country: "I LOVE, #RubyWoo!" "I wear #RubyWoo every time I preach!" "I've been wearing #RubyWoo for years!"

Soon the Twitterverse was flowing with women posting pictures of themselves wearing #RubyWoo. It became a movement.

I am blessed to have been included in that conversation, and to be one of the small group of evangelical women invited on this historic pilgrimage.

The journey launches November 12-16! We've been organizing since May. And this thing is happening! But I need your help to get me there!  The cost per person is $1245 (plus flights). Each participant is responsible for raising the funds for their registration. And I am attempting to raise additional funds to provide scholarships for other amazing women.

I can not tell you how excited I am about this trip - and what a privilege it is to be able to embark on this pilgrimage with the amazing women who are going.  I know I will learn so much.  I also know that this trip will amplify my leadership in many ways.
