In this virtual roundtable organized by me, Kathryn Buford, and Suey Park, we invited women of color to discuss coming together to consider #solidarity and feminisms across communities of color, as well as recent issues and challenges we face as women of color dealing with racism, colorism, classism, sexism, heterosexism/homophobia, and transphobia. What does solidarity mean to us, and what does feminism mean to us? How do we build a united front ready and able to support each other across cultural communities?
