We forge community amongst Black girls and  women in the city of Richmond by cultivating spaces for us to come together.

We promote self-care by planning events that allow Black women to put our mental, emotional, physical and psychological health first. 

We encourage and empower each other by supporting Black women who are driven to make a change. 

Black women were created of brown sugar and warm honey.  The sweetest thing to bless the earth. Be wary of anyone who tells you otherwise.”

“We, who had no designated safe havens where we could carry our vomit for other people to clean up for us — who were too urgently needed to afford to pause for occasional maintenance, too dignified to succumb to emotional fatigue — not for us the overpaid charlatans disguised as therapists, who would only poke at our scabs and suck our money. No. We, the unbreakable ones, we ourselves were all the therapy that we needed.”
