ABOUT


The Brown Grrlz Project brings womyn together regardless to class, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, sexual identification, religion or culture. The Brown Grrlz Project is dedicated to challenging the way that hegemonic society defines and oppresses womyn of color. We do so by creating intentional spaces where we act as authors of our own experience and are valued and recognized, by affirming and sharing science and knowledge. We also provide support, resources, funding, community building, and community based education. We affirm our value through creating spaces for us to celebrate ourselves and our dedication to building a society beyond exclusion.
 
Our Mission
 

The Brown Grrlz Project is a community dedicated to the advancement of womyn of color. We create visibility across boarders, honoring our differences while celebrating our similarities with the notion that by tearing down the walls that divide us we can rise together.
