Welcome to The Momference® 2022!
Mama, we cannot wait to host you for a phenomenal weekend of Black Mom Magic.
The Momference® each year brings in mamas from all over, new and seasoned, for an amazing weekend of memories. This is our 5th year, and the theme is LEGACY. We must be intentional about how we live, who we impact, and most importantly, what we leave for our children and our communities. Year five of The Momference® focuses on solidifying our past and securing our future. We’ll look back at how The Momference® and District Motherhued® have grown, and look forward as we provide perspectives and resources to ensure that Black mothers are able to leave a beautiful legacy for our children.
To celebrate a fantastic 5 year spin of hosting the conference, join us for a 2-part Saturday. The full day conference at The Capital Hilton and The Legacy Soiree held at the stunning Washington, D.C museum, Planet Word. The Legacy Soiree will be a celebratory night of dancing, awards, cocktails, and more.
We hope to host you!!

FAQ: Can I bring my baby to The Momference and is there dedicated space for moms to nurse/pump?
Answer: We wouldn’t have it any other way! The Momference is an adult-only event, however Non-mobile babies (10 months and younger) are welcome to accompany mom to the conference if needed.
Nursing moms and those with babies in tow can enjoy our Mommy Lounge to relax, nurse/pump and store milk in our mini-fridges!
