“Creating an all-inclusive environment included encouraging people to bring their children and providing kid-friendly spaces in the event. [Lo] notes that if kids aren’t welcome, then women with children may be excluded from participating.” ~L.A. Weekly in Liz Ohanesian article titled, When Race Meets Feminism.
“Blk Grrrl Book Fair initiative, organized by [black, feminist, poet] and journalist Teka-Lark [Lo]…I’d like to say that the Blk Grrrl Book Fair… was one of the liveliest events I’ve witnessed in a long time.” ~ Art News in Amelia Jones article, titled, On Sexism in the Art World.

We’re are open to sponsorship opportunities.
