About

The mission of the Women of Color Network (WOCN Inc.) is to eliminate violence against ALL women and their communities by centralizing the voices and promoting the leadership of women of color across the Sovereign Nations, the United States and U.S. Territories.

The purpose of WOCN, Inc. is to work in and beyond the fields of domestic violence and sexual assault to address a broad range of violence affecting communities of color such as human trafficking, police brutality and over-incarceration. We accomplish this by examining and responding to a global context of colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, racism, sexism, heterosexism, transphobia, and other forms of oppression that intersect with violence against women of color and their communities.

1. We examine within a global context various forms of oppression such as capitalism, racism, sexism, heterosexism and ways they intersect with violence.

2. We welcome all women of Asian/Pacific Islander, Arab/Middle-Eastern, Black/African, Native/Indigenous, and Hispanic/Latin descent to join this cause.

3. We also welcome aspiring allies who are addressing their 'isms on a daily basis as supporters of this cause.
