Are you a Black or Brown woman of size looking for friends and authentic connection with other women?
Do you sometimes wish you had friends who understood the unique experiences of living in a larger body as a woman of color?
Are you still navigating how to embrace your confidence and power as a woman of size?
This is the PERFECT event for you! Come, join us.
This event is designed to offer sisterhood, support, and sanctuary for plus-size, full-figured, and fat women of color.
Fat Women of Color™ started as a movement on Instagram in February of 2017. In just a little over a year, it has now expanded to having over 17,000 followers and a private Facebook Group. The online platforms have helped thousands of larger-bodied women of color by providing sisterhood, support, and sanctuary for them to flourish and thrive.
Now it's time to take the movement LIVE! The very first event for Fat Women of Color™ will be in Washington D.C. It is a chance for women of color who identify as fat to connect and share with each other. The event will include:
- Meet & Greet: Connect with other fat women of color from the DMV and other parts of the world.
- Eat & Drink: Enjoy delicious food and refreshing beverages while chatting and connecting.
- Learn & Reflect: Hear helpful insight and perspectives from others about living as a fat woman of color while you also reflect on your own journey and experiences.
There's no need to worry about being perfect or proper. This is a comfy environment! Dress comfortable, relax, and show up as yourself. Think of this as a daytime slumber party.
Please Note: This is an event that centers around women of color who identify as fat. Women who are plus-sized, full-figured, or larger-bodied are welcomed to attend, even if they have not fully embraced the label "fat". However, please be aware that "fat" will be used as an identifier during this event.
