Our Mission

Our work aims to connect solitary encounters of being women of colour in Scotland, to a global experience of movement, marginalisation and migration. We are focused on increasing awareness of issues related to racism, sexism and other systems of oppression, including by challenging the ways that women of colour remain under-represented in Scottish public life.

Yon Afro emphasises uplifting, connecting, informing and celebrating women of colour in Scotland, including their diverse appearances, styles, personalities and heritage. We aim to embrace, empower and showcase the spectrum of our women in this society.
