Black and Asian Feminist Solidarities

This project is an ongoing relationship and commitment to practicing solidarity. Solidarity at its core is about relationships. Solidarity means: we understand and commit to taking responsibility for one another — and that is the radical feminist future we believe in.  What does it mean for us to hold space together? To grieve, to heal, to rest, to express joy? To be accountable? This project asks, what can we do together?

As a collaboration between Black Women Radicals and the Asian American Feminist Collective, this project looks to Black and Asian American feminist histories, practices, and frameworks on care, community, and survival for the tools and strategies to continue to build towards collective liberation.

This editorial collaboration is made possible by support from the Henry Luce Foundation and the Art for Justice Fund, a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.
