THIS is why we do this work.

Our blog title is grounded in and modeled after the anthology: This Bridge Called My Back, in honor of the women and femme ancestors and healers of color whose narratives, wisdoms, and truths serve as blueprints for our liberation and movements towards freedom; Who breathe resistance and survival through their bones, allowing us to live through their audacity to reclaim their livelihood, our livelihood. The dreams of Cherrie Moraga, Gloria Anzaldua, Barbara Smith, Nellie Wong, Marsha P. Johnson, Audre Lorde, our mothers, our sisters, our siblings, our fierce femme relatives, and other revolutionary warrior women instilled in us the importance of healing from within & catalyzing coalition building with all women & femme communities of color, including but not limited to trans, gender non conforming, queer, working class, immigrant, sick & disabled, and third world women & femmes. We ground our work in these truths and hope this forum will operate as a sacred and meaningful space within which women and femmes of all genders can exhale, celebrate, and affirm one another.
