As longtime residents of Boston and the Greater Boston area, Iliana Panameño and Mu-Chieh Yun recognized a need for diverse representations of women of color as well as inclusive spaces for their communities.
In finding validation in sharing their own experiences with each other, they created We, Ceremony to empower and celebrate women of color through storytelling.
Today, We, Ceremony is a network of women of color who take pride in their lived experiences and are redefining what it means to be both a woman and a person of color.
