Women of Color Beyond Faith Forum & the Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers


Women of color remain the most consistently religious group in the nation. At the same time, the majority of women of color live in highly segregated communities that cut across class lines. For many African American and Latino women of all backgrounds, faith and religion are intimately woven into their daily lived experiences, community contexts, social and civic ties and sense of mental health and wellness. As part of the national Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers on Sunday, February 22nd Black Skeptics Los Angeles hosted a Women of Color Beyond Faith forum at CFI L.A. The forum focused on the cultural, social, political and personal issues that inform the choices some women of color have made to question/reject organized religion. It also highlighted the challenge and promise of forging alternative secular spaces that are culturally responsive to the needs of women of color.
