This year the conference is Co-Sponsored by Temple Universities Women Studies/LGBT Program and will be October 7th - 9th. We consider our third year to be our grounding year our 2011 is theme Fertile Ground: Womyn Revealed, Revived and Renewed.
The goal of the LGBTQ Womyn of Color Conference is to be used as a mechanism to gather the LGBTQ womyn of color community who have been historically dispersed and relegated to the fringes of our society. This marginalization creates a substantial gap in services, access to information and advocacy, not only in terms of resources, but also in terms of accessing each other.
Our hope in organizing a conference, which is the first ever of its kind in the Greater Philadelphia region, is to harnest the energies, talents, skills, abilities of our community to begin the work of healing and building networks to support that aim.
