The mission of ThisWomansWords is to elevate the voices, words, and experiences of those identifying as part of marginalized communities with a specific emphasis on communities that include Afro-Indigenous women, Children of Color, and LGBTQ+ People of Color.
We have embodied this mission through:
Writing articles and blog posts about a variety of topics that impact marginalized communities for multiple publications.
Establishing literacy-based initiatives for Children of Color while advocating for diverse children’s books to be added to the shelves of public libraries and Little Free Libraries in Alamance County, North Carolina. The literacy-based initiatives established have included: a Virtual Reading Series, sharing/distributing literacy resources, compiling reading lists, and hosting a Virtual Book Fair.
Creating the These Women’s Words space to elevate the voices of Black and Indigenous women.
Participating in, coordinating, and facilitating events and conversations to raise awareness about issues impacting marginalized communities.
Supporting Black and Indigenous Authors and Business Owners via website features, interviews, and the establishment of the 2021 Virtual Book Fair Shopping Guide and the ThisWomansWords’ Black and Indigenous Business Directory.
Look out for additional opportunities to partner with and support ThisWomansWords in the very near future!
