Allies and advocates of BWWE

An Ally is someone who may or may not identify as a Black or African-American widow but recognizes and affirms the experiences shared by BWWE individuals and demonstrates online, physical, and/or monetary support for the BWWE community.

If you're in agreement, please use this guide as a basis for your decision and select the button below to confirm. 

"Anyone has the potential to be an ally. Allies recognize that though they’re not a member of the underinvested and oppressed communities they support, they make a concerted effort to better understand the struggle, every single day. Because an ally might have more privilege and recognizes said privilege, they are powerful voices alongside oppressed ones."
