Who We Are

We are women of color who identify as Black (or African Descent), Latina or Hispanic(non-white), Asian, Middle Eastern, or Native American or (Indigenous Descent). We recognize and celebrate the intersection of social identities in our work including but not limited to race, gender and sexuality. Our framework challenges ethnic, anti-black racism, classism, and heterosexism which disproportionately affect Black and Latina women.

Our Mission

Massachusetts Women of Color Coalition is dedicated to eradicating the racial inequities among women of color created by structural, institutional, interpersonal, and internalized racism. We will address racial inequities through authentic inclusion in the areas of political and civic leadership, education justice, economic power and sustainability, criminal justice reform and health and wellness. Our success will maximize the benefits and contributions for all aggrieved communities of color and the Commonwealth as a whole.

Our Vision

We envision a CommonWealth of authentic inclusion where racism and sexism no longer dictate the outcomes of women of color and our communities.
