Women's History Month: LaTierra Piphus
LaTierra Piphus is a Professional Womanist and Community Organizer specializing in affinity groups for Black Queer & Trans folks, Black Womyn & Femmes. Piphus founded The Womanist Working Collective as a social action and support collective for Black womyn (both cis & trans), femmes & gender variant folks.
Established in October 2015 as an affinity group on Meetup, they began gathering as a group of likeminded Black women & femmes. Today, they continue building around the needs and feedback from their members to achieve their ultimate goal: Black Liberation!
“What inspires my work are the gifts, offerings and technologies for survival developed by Black womyn and femmes who both intuitively and through lived experience, knew that our communities would need these tools one day. There is a lifetime’s worth of knowledge, skills, literature, art, maps, instructional guides and resistance strategies created by our ancestors throughout our herstory because they genuinely wanted to see us free.” - LaTierra Piphus
