In celebration of Women’s HERstory Month, The LP is launching a series of events in partnership with local stakeholders and businesses in Bed-Stuy. The events will feature the voices of Black women artists and community leaders whose work has made impacts across Black history, art, identity, business, and social justice.
We’ll close Women’s Herstory Month with a social event for local residents, artists, and the LP staff to mingle and connect over snacks and beverages! As a part of March’s Liberation Series, this storefront social will focus on the history of women on the history of women––particularly queer women and transfemmes––organizing through letter writing. Throughout the evening’s social, the storefront will have a letter writing station set up where participants can take a moment to write to Black transwomen and transfemmes who are currently incarcerated. There will also be information on and example letters from the rich history of women-led and trans-led community organizing in prisons.
