Audre Lorde Awareness Brunch
On Sunday, October 25th from 11:30am–1:00pm, Fenway’s Women’s Health Team will host the 22nd Annual Audre Lorde Cancer Awareness Brunch, a celebration of women of color and their supporters whose lives have been affected by cancer. Started in 1999, the brunch is named in memory of Audre Lorde, a self-described “Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” who battled cancer for 14 years. This year’s Brunch will be hosted virtually through Zoom in order to protect the health of our guests.
The Audre Lorde Cancer Awareness Brunch is a gathering for women of color to share, network, and rediscover their resilience and strength. The theme for this year’s event is to encourage cancer survivors to unite in sisterhood, learn about survival through health education, and rise as warriors during the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustice.
The event will feature an interactive dance session with TRILLFIT, musical performances by Grace Givertz, and every household will receive a wellness care package with fun surprise items.
Please RSVP by September 25th!
