About

The Women of Color Empowerment Project aims to bring light to the disadvantages experienced by women of color (WOC) as well as celebrate their accomplishments through our social media platforms and host webinars with guest speakers. Throughout history, WOC have been underrepresented in the majority of social, political, and environmental conversations. We want to educate people on BIPOC women’s experiences and the disproportionate amount of struggles they face. Through doing this, we also would like to uplift and celebrate BIPOC women. In the month of February, We will be dedicating the focus of the Women of Color Empowerment Project around the experiences of black women.
