Thank You for Supporting QWOC WEEK 2009! We Are on Hiatus till the Fall

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on August 10th, 2009

QWOC WEEK was a HUGE success; we did it bigger and better than last year, and due to your support, are anticipating an even wider reach in 2010!

Thank you to ALL of you that came out to the events, that posted about the week (and/or ALL of the events on Facebook), that nagged your friends about attending and supporting the work, that came out night after night to engage with your community… There wouldn’t be QWOC WEEK or a QWOC+ Boston without you.

We’d also like to take a moment to thank each and every one of the organizations, businesses, grassroots movements, and individuals that contributed to the success of QWOC WEEK. Thank you for  taking our belief – that social networking can be a powerful tool to promote diversity and multiculturalism – to the next level.

As the organizers and volunteers take some time off to enjoy the rest of the summer, we rest knowing that there were many new connections made (and some older ones renewed!) from the successful week. We look forward to watching these new connections blossom into more fruitful partnerships this year and beyond! Photos will be up on our website by mid-week, so be sure to check back in a couple of days.

THANK YOU ALL! See you in the Fall!
