SPK (v.) to express one’s feelings or opinions frankly and publicly. (see also: to refuse to be silenced; to celebrate one’s self; to stand tall; to tell it like it is.)
BRN GRL SPK (Brown Girl Speak) is a creative arts event series that empowers women and femmes of color while also fundraising for change. We aim to support BRN GRLs by creating space where they can speak their minds creatively and build community.
1. Creating spaces and platforms for BRN GRLs to express themselves creatively through performance, written word, visual art, and more.
2. Uplifting, unifying, and empowering BRN GRLs to love themselves in a world that doesn’t always love them back.
3. Giving to organizations that dedicate their time to creating change for BRN GRLs and preserving their health, culture, education, and spirit.
Each of our events showcases the BRN GRL SPK community's talents while raising money for a good cause. To date, we've raised nearly $7,000 for local organizations and we're not stopping there.
