Come to be part of this big celebration and be part of the conversation about Black Womyn’s social, political, economic, spiritual position or role in this society.

“Since 1992, when the First Afro-Latin American and Afro-Caribbean Women in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) met, July 25 marks the International Day of Women of African Descent in the Americas, also known as International Women’s Day Afro-Latin, Afro-Caribbean and the Diaspora or African Women’s Day.”

“According to official statistics, it is estimated that only in America live more than 80 million people who are self-determining as black women and if you are born black has a 90% chance of being poor and few countries that provide public policies which consider the conditions, needs and specificities of black women.”
