Harambec: Reviving the Black Feminist Collective


”Funding from Concordia’s SHIFT Centre for Social Transformation will support the creation of a Black feminist advocacy organization.

A new community-based project in collaboration with Concordia aims to restore “the tradition of Black Feminist organizing at Concordia that bloomed in the ’70s and ’80s,” says one of its creators, Marlihan Lopez, undergraduate program and outreach coordinator at the university’s Simone de Beauvoir Institute.

The project, Harambec:Reviving the Black Feminist Collective, will provide resources for and by Black women and gender-expansive people in the areas of teaching, experiential learning, research, professional development, mentorship and more. It’s funded by the SHIFT Centre for Social Transformation Deep Investment Fund.”
