March is International Women's History Month, with International Women's Day celebrated on March 8th. In addition to our annual Community Collab with Zonta Club of Guelph, for all of March you can support Black Women in Motion through a donation on our online store. Black Women in Motion is a Toronto-based, youth-led organization that empowers and supports the advancement of black womxn and survivors of sexual violence. They work within an anti-racist, intersectional feminist, trauma-informed and survivor-centred framework to create culturally-relevant content, educational tools, healing spaces and economic opportunities for black womxn.
“It is my duty as community member, more importantly as a black womxn to ensure the well-being, prosperity and advancement of my people, particularly Black womxn. Black womxn have endured the unfathomable - and we are still here. We are poignant, prolific, and radiant. We draw our strength from our blackness and ancestry to fight oppression and injustice, while educating others, so that they can do the same. The Black womxn must be protected at all costs.” - Monica Samuel, Founder and Executive Director
