DC Daughters of the Diaspora
Building an authentic network of like-minded women of color who believe in the value and power of our leadership in Washington, DC.
There is Power in our Alliance
Above all else, women of color need to heal as a unit from the diverse impacts of systemic and internalized racism on us, our families, our neighbors and our communities. We also have relevant and practical culturally-based ideas that, if given the proper cultivation and support, would blossom into the viable and effective non-profits and programs our blocks, neighborhoods and communities need to authentically flourish without gentrification. DC Daughters of the Diaspora endeavors to bring all women of color together so we can use our ingenuity and wisdom to:
Heal our peoples
Acknowledging and prioritizing our individual and collective healing from the traumatic effects of both systemic and internalized racism as well as their impact on views and ideas about one another.
Amplify our Voices
Creating or joining diverse, global think-tank that welcome ideas from women of color across all skin colors, ethic heritages and class lines and provide a platform for innovation within our communities.
Empower our Sisters
Fostering economic synergy by building spaces designed to support collaborative teaching, resource sharing and global networking while providing support for the for-profits, nonprofits, schools and programs in our neighborhoods and especially those that will erupt from within our sisterhood.
