In lieu of a changing political tide, this year for our annual celebration of Audre Lorde’s Birthday, we will uplift the role, historical legacy and future of Black Feminism, by highlighting how it has been foundational to our LGBTSTGNC POC resistance and resilience. 

We will be holding an Intergenerational Dialogue on Radical Black Feminist Traditions in our past, present & futures.
Come with your curiosity, desire, and hunger for our collective analysis and knowledge!
