Anti-Oppression

Women of Color Roundtable 

The Women of Color Roundtable gives advocates of color (Asian/Pacific Islander, Arab/Middle-Eastern, Black/African American/Caribbean/West Indies, Native/Indigenous, and Hispanic/Latin descent) the opportunity to discuss various topics that affect women of color as advocates as well as survivors. The Women of Color Roundtable is open to all advocates of color. The Roundtable held twice a year in conjunction with our quarterly membership meeting.

 The roundtable understands the isolation, frustration, and lack of representation and invisibility felt by women of color in the movement and our goal is to work toward building and growing so no one feels invisible or powerless. 

 WOC Goals:

-To educate WOC through training sessions for professional growth.

-To empower WOC to focus on personal growth and development.

-To promote networking amongst member programs.

-To remove barriers that many WOC advocates face daily.
