Our Mission

“In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.”


                                                                                                        - Dr.Angela Y. Davis

Our mission is to cultivate a space for professional Women of Color to nurture community, collaborate, and share professional, educational and life resources.

“Tacoma Women of Color Collective was conceived as a way to bring into existence the opportunities and connections that I was searching for in Tacoma as a professional WoC. I was looking for spaces that not only embraced the ambitious and career driven me, but the mother, friend and community leader in me. I believe for WoC to truly be successful, that we should be able to show up whole, as the multi dimensional, intersectional beings that we are.

Please join me in building this table, FOR US and BY US.”

-Krista Pérez
