About Women of Color on the Move

Mission Statement

Women of Color On The Move is committed to helping women succeed and soar in their many responsibilities to themselves, their families and their community.


We are lucky to live in a diverse community. However, even though every person is unique and valuable, we often see members of our community put down for their most inherent traits. We strive to recognize these qualities and value them for what they are: wonderful.

Specifically, women of color are often told to back down and blend in. We say to stand tall and be outstanding. Be your marvelous self and show the world how great you are. Your race, gender and other traits are things to celebrate and be proud of. Never listen to anyone who wants to degrade you for them.

We seek solutions to our nation’s health and economic crisis’ proactively and in real time.

We seek to engage women as informed and active agents in the political arena to affect legislation, policy and our lives.

We aspire to make our voices resonant, respected and effective as we speak to the challenges that confront us individually and collectively.

We pledge to share information to be knowledgeable advocates, and to embrace each other in our myriad journey of growth and self-improvement
