What is Northwest Pilgrims?

Northwest Pilgrims is an annual gathering of women who are interested in the intersection of women and Mormonism.  We come together from around the Pacific Northwest (and beyond), from all levels of orthodoxy, activity, and belief to share in a safe space.  NW Pilgrims is dedicated to learning, growing together, and giving each one of us a voice and a place to be heard.
