Black Feminist Collective is an intergenerational community that centers the voices of Black womanists & Black feminists who advocate for the liberation of all Black folks, meaning that we stand with each other, look out for each other as a community, and are intentional to stand for the liberation of all Black lives. While it’s okay to have disagreements, and active listening, and learning and growing from each other is greatly encouraged, the line is drawn at:
- Transphobia, homophobia, misogyny, colorism, classism, ableism, xenophobia, fatphobia, ageism, classism, and elitism. The line is also drawn at tone policing, gaslighting, targeting, bullying of anyone – including supporters and members of BFC – who stands against these oppressive systems.
- The line is also drawn at co-optation of this space as a self-improvement venue for non-Black people to demand emotional labor from Black folks, or to gaslight and invalidate our experiences; to patronize us about our lived experiences and how we fight for our own liberation; to tone police the way Black people respond to our lived experiences; The line is also drawn at taking credit for someone else’s labor and passing it off as their own, which is applicable to everyone.
- While the comment sections on Black Feminist Collective are closely moderated, not all of the comments can’t be read. In that case, tag us, or privately message us. This is open to any and all people to warn us of trolls who do all of the above, (including those who bombard people with slurs and threats).
