MEMBERSHIP

Welcome to Black Feminist Future’s Membership.

Welcome to Black Feminist Future’s Membership. Are you a new or long-time Black feminist leader or activist who wants to defeat misogynoir and advance Black feminisms? Are you looking for a community of Black people who are interested in liberation? If so, our community of Black feminist leaders is the hub for you. Black Feminist Future (BFF) is a member centered organization and our members help inform our work, campaigns and intiatives. At BFF, we’re centering leadership development, community care, and joy in order to build the political and social power that we need to win concrete changes in our lives, community, and beyond.

We’re building a membership rooted in centering joy, community care, and leadership development. Instead of thinking of membership as a place to go or created by others, being a member of BFF is an opportunity to practice our politics and build something powerful together. And who doesn’t want to defeat misogynoir and advance Black feminisms!

It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

ASSATA SHAKUR

While Black feminisms is for everyone, Black Feminist Future’s membership is for anyone who has had the lived experience of being a Black women, girl, or gender-expansive person.

What we mean is that our membership is open to Black trans women, femmes, studs, gender non-conforming people, nonbinary, cis women, and beyond, and  the many who are confronting and living in the constraints of the gender binary.

Training and

Skill Building

We equip our members with necessary organizing and leadership tools, analysis, skills, training, and a community of Black feminists to take action in their daily lives, local communities, and on the national level. Black Feminist Future curates liberation-centered materials exclusively for BFF members. These offerings help our members develop the necessary skills, analysis, and practice to imagine Black feminist solutions and set Black feminist agendas.

BFF Hives

Community building is crucial to fostering a strong and powerful membership. Building together towards a shared vision is a transformative practice that is necessary to win! The BFF team will support the creation of intentional space to build community together.

In particular, we are interested in supporting community building through our HIVES.

HIVES are designated clusters of members who collaborate to take action on specific issues, host trainings, or hold community building events together. You can select the HIVE that most aligns with your interest. BFF HIVES will grow and shift to reflect the diverse interests of our members.
