Her Dream Deferred:
A Week on the Status of Black Women
At the end of each March, in honor of Women's History Month and the UN’s International Decade for People of African Descent, AAPF hosts Her Dream Deferred, a weeklong series of activities focused on elevating the crisis facing Black women and girls.
AAPF has hosted Her Dream Deferred to amplify the voices and narratives of Black women and girls. The week long programming challenges 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.
