FIERCE WOMEN.
BIG DREAMS.
WELCOME HOME.

A non-profit coworking and community space built by and for women and gender expansive people of color, Zora’s House is a place to gather. To connect. To make progress. To feel safe. And most of all, to thrive.

ZORA’S HOUSE MEANS FINDING YOUR PEOPLE

Zora’s House membership means more than just access to events or to our physical building. It means belonging to a community where you can be vulnerable in your discussion, honest in your experiences, bold in your dreaming, and unapologetic on your journey as a woman of color.

“Such as I am, I am a precious gift.”

— Zora Neale Hurston

WHO WAS ZORA?

Our namesake, Zora Neale Hurston, was a filmmaker, anthropologist, and one of the most widely published Black woman authors of the Harlem Renaissance. Her work celebrated the depth and beauty of Black American culture and resilience.

During a time when Black authors were encouraged only to put forth the most “flattering” views of Black culture, Zora wrote about Black women who drank, and cursed, and rebelled; celebrating their complexities and turning their perfectly imperfect lives into art.

“I have the nerve to walk my own way, however hard, in my search for reality, rather than climb upon the rattling wagon of wishful illusions."

– Zora Neale Hurston

SPACE TO GROW. SPACE TO GLOW.

In the words of one of our members, “Imagine your favorite coffee shop and your homegirl’s house had a baby, and that’s Zora’s House!” Part grassroots community space, part co-working studio, part workshop and event space, Zora’s House is a sanctuary for women and gender expansive people of color to dream, connect, and create; to shine bright and inspire change.

LEARN AND GROW TOGETHER

Friends and fun. Workshops and wine. Events at Zora’s House range from socializing to skill building, while fostering bonds that deeply connect our members with themselves and each other.

JOIN OUR AMAZING CREW OF DONORS!

Women of color have historically led change, but have not historically been invested in. For too long, we’ve lacked a space of our own to dream, heal, build and thrive. Zora’s House is transformative, radical, and most of all, it’s overdue.
