The Womanist Working Collective functions as a Community of Practice whose primary focus is centering the Quality of Life for Black women (both cis & trans), femmes, girls and Gender Non-conforming folks. By centering our holistic well- being from an Equity Lens, we expand the conversation past just ensuring that we are safe and able to survive these conditions to demanding and co-creating the optimal conditions for us all to thrive wherever we are.

At the table, people can come and go, agree or disagree, take turns talking or speak all at once, and laugh, shout, complain, or counsel—even be present in silence.

When the kitchen table metaphor is applied to political problem-solving situations, the relations of domination and subordination break down in favor of more egalitarian, interpersonal processes.” (The Womanist Reader, 2006)
