This free networking day summit is to educate, elevate and empower QWOC. We will begin the day with a Brunch and a Powerful Talk with the Phenomenal Debra Johnson, Pioneer of Philadelphia Leading Organization: Philly Black Pride: Sharing Space with Gods Anointed Rev. Paula Smith Benson: Learning to Develop and understand Ancestral Alter Building With Mamba Yansa, Powerful workshop discussions with a Collective of Womyn from The Phenomenal Cassandra Bolding Trauma Therapist, Dr. Robin Smith, Sappho Fulton, Women Collective LaTerria, Philadelphia’s own LaRoyce Miles-Fulton; Philadelphia Commissioner of Womyns Veterans Affairs Aronda Smith Benson and UPenn spectacular gender non binary culture speaking to the outdated understanding of "label me not".
Being a black womyn in society can sometimes feel as though you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders and identifying as a queer black womyn can sometimes magnify that stress. QWOC DAY SUMMIT seeks to create a safe space for black and brown womyn where we can communicate without judgment, voice our opinions/concerns about issues directly affecting us, enjoy the company of people like you, grow new friendships/connections, and celebrate life.
