March 27th-March 31st
In honor of Women's History Month and the United Nations' International Decade for People of African Descent, AAPF will be hosting our third annual #HerDreamDeferred, a weeklong series on status of Black women and girls, at the end of March.
Over the past two years, AAPF has hosted Her Dream Deferred to amplify the voices and narratives of Black women and girls. This year, AAPF is excited to challenge the narrative by hosting dialogues that not only speak to the harms that women and girls of color face but also the tools to dismantle those structural barriers that plague them in their homes, schools, and communities.
Additionally, this year we are very excited to move beyond the computer screen to set up at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for three days (March 28th, 29th and 30th). The other two events will take place at Impact Hub LA (March 31st) and virtually (March 27th). All events will also be live-streamed.
