Do I have to be a member of ANWO to attend this event?
No. Any person who wants to attend can do so as long as they register.
Is this event strictly for Black Women?
Our target attendees are black women. However, others can attend if you have solidarity with and/or work with black women and want to learn about the issues black women are leading in order to offer your alliance and support. You should indicate your nationality and gender on the registration form. The Black Women's Convention reserves the right to cap non-black participant registrations, at any time.
Do you need volunteers for this convention?
Yes! We need volunteers for registration, program, childcare and logistics. Complete our volunteer application to be considered.
Do you offer scholarships?
Limited registration scholarships may be available for black women who absolutely cannot cover the cost of entry. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.
Do you offer travel assistance for attendees?
We can help you develop a plan by finding ways to offset costs. However, we do not provide cash assistance. ANWO is a community based and funded organization. When we organize our annual events, we strive to pick the most affordable options for venues and housing in order to keep costs low. We believe these choices will help make attending our conventions easier.
Why is this a socialist event?
ANWO is a socialist African women's organization that believes that the means of production should be owned and controlled by the workers. In Africa and African communities everywhere. We believe that social control and ownership will bring about improved conditions for black people and black women in particular. Our conventions, topics and events are geared toward preparing ourselves and other black women for a future where black women workers have power.
Is this a feminist event?
No. ANWO has accepted the theory of African Internationalism as a path toward women's liberation. This is the guiding principle of our work and of this event program.
Do I have to be socialist or know about African Internationalism to attend this event?
No. Come as you are.
