Q: I’m White! Can I come to your meetups and hang outs and movie nights and your SBF Book Club meetings, too? I’m a feminist!
Q: I’m a Black trans woman! Can I participate in events you host that are exclusively for Black women?
A: If we host an event exclusively for Black women, if you identify as a Black woman you can participate. If we host an event exclusively for Black women and you do not identify as a Black woman, you cannot participate.
Q: I’m a Black male, can I come to your meetups and Book Club meetings, too? I’m a feminist!
A: Yes We hang with Black feminists of all genders.
Q: I’m biracial, mixed with Black. Am I allowed in your meetups, or is this not the place for me and will I be discriminated against?
A: Race is a complicated thing. Seattle Black Feminists are made up of many different people. You won’t be discriminated against.
Q: Can I bring my kids?
A: Black people have always been made to separate ourselves from our children — and we don’t support that here. Unless we’re going somewhere little ones are not allowed (i.e. the bar, a tattoo parlor), your children are welcome to any and all of our events. We do not provide babysitting or childcare; there is no reason they cannot or should not be involved in our activities.
Q: Why are some of your posts password protected?
A: This is a meetup site — an arena for local Black feminists. Some of the information about location — i.e. someone’s home address, as one example, is sensitive, and is not intended for the elusive world wide web, but only for those in the local vicinity.
Q: Is Seattle Black Feminists on Facebook?
Q: Can I submit an event to the SBF blog?
A: Yes. As long as it’s Black feminist-centric or an event Black feminists find fitting then you can send it over via the contact page or submit through email: seattleblackfeminists(at)gmail(dot)com
