WoCW is in close communication with the town of Provincetown, the Provincetown Business Guild, the local venues and the Boston Pride Committee regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

At this time we anticipate that Womxn of Color Weekend 2020 (June 4th-7th) will be held as scheduled, but we are monitoring the situation closely and we will make sure to inform you if anything changes. All updates will be posted on our social media pages and websites, as well as emailed to those who are registered.

The health and well-being of our community is of utmost importance. We are continuously aware of the financial commitment of our community to attend Womxn of Color Weekend, and the fundamental need for us to gather as a community.  We are following the guidance of the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) and will continue to do so going forward. For more information regarding COVID-19 please refer to the links above as well as your local government (for us, that's Boston Public Health).

We hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and sane during these challenging times.
