support and healing tailored specifically to their needs.

Identifying Women

A person, who regardless of their sex assigned at birth, identifies as a woman and/or who identifies as female non-conforming. 

African Ancestry 

A Black identity is a self and collectively conscious effort for people of African descent to be self-naming and self-defining in route to increasing the human respect and dignity of African people and their descendants.

By M. Keith Claybrook, Jr

Women of Colour

“Women of Color is not a biological designation. It is a solidarity definition. A commitment to work in collaboration with other oppressed women of color who have been minoritized. It is a term that has a lot of power.”


By Loretta J. Ross

Be You. Love You. Do You.
