A group of women and femmes of colors organized a trip to a conference in New York this month that was put together by a group called ‘Women of Color In Solidarity.’ It was organized as a space for women of color, by women of color. The conference was open to women and femmes of color, and was free to elders and children. The theme was Solidarity Beyond Borders.
This year’s annual conference took place at the East Village Community School in Lower Manhattan, New York on April 21, 2018. Workshops included Investing In Your Roots, (Migrant) Justice is What Love Looks Like in Public, Regular-Degular feminism: A Hood Feminist Workshop, Ancestors to the Front, Women of Color in The Academy, and more. The conference succeeded in creating a space of healing, learning, and growing in a concentrated sense of unapologetic brown and blackness.
