Feminista Social Club was a black and brown run feminist space created by two good buds, Jasmine Magaña and Amber Dennis. Started in 2015 as a monthly event in Buffalo, NY, it centered intersectional gender equity and justice. We have since moved on to different cities (Durham and New York) , but still consider Feminista a place for creative production, collaboration, and community building whether it be physical or digital. Check out some of our past projects (by ourselves, together and with other partners) below:
