    There are many layers of the

    dating world on its own.

    But what happens when you are mixed and enter into relationships?
    What do you experience
    How are your experiences similar or different from others?
    This month, inspired by personal events, members on our team are asking each other to explore the nuances of dating. How can we make sure we are honoring our whole selves in our intimate relationships?

    We are layered. Bringing all those layers and authentically showing up is difficult, so we want to have a conversation about it! We are asking people to come and share their experiences in the dating field. Whether you have completely given up, are swiping on apps, currently dating, in a long term relationship, married, separated, or scared beyond belief to even THINK about dating... come chat with our community <3

    All of your gender identities, sexualities, and relationship models are welcome here.

    Meetup Booklet

    Follow along with our meetup by downloading this booklet.
    This is where you’ll find our Community Guidelines, and Maria P. P. Root’s Bill of Rights for People of Mixed Heritage and Multiracial Oath of Responsibility. We lean on this language as a pillar to create safe spaces for critical conversation. If you want to come extra prepared, take a look at our meetup vocabulary list at the end and explore how you would define each term.

    Topics of Conversation

    DATING +
     COURTSHIP:

    Having layered identities can cause us to question different things about ourselves and how potential love interests perceive us.

    RELATIONSHIPS +
     PARTNERSHIPS:

    As mixed people, we are whole and never half. It's important for our partners not to separate us or compartmentalize who we are.

    SETTLING +
     SEPARATING:

    We’re all having to weigh the balance of societal expectations versus our own timelines, life experiences, and desires.

    RECAP BLOG

    The April Meetup became one of our most personal and vulnerable spaces yet. Our recap video recounts why Lili & Ariel decided to protect the space and respect the privacy of our attendees. From navigating dating apps to honoring our partner’s cultures, the April Meetup recap still brings many unique viewpoints.

    We're Asking...

    What goes through your mind as you prepare to go on dates or engage in romantic experiences?
    What are your core values and needs from a relationship?

    How do you know when it’s time to move on?

    Do you believe in the ONE?

    Dr. Donna R. Walton

    Dr. Donna R. Walton, the author of Shattered Dreams, Broken Pieces, had dreams of international stardom. All it took was one diagnosis at the age of eighteen to turn her life upside down. Through the power of reinvention, Walton got her a new lease on life. Through thousands of hours working with other amputees, staring in “The Retreat” web series showcasing her disability, to receiving national recognition from the National Disability Institute, and being featured on C-SPAN for her community-building projects surrounding the beauty of being a black woman with a disability, Walton credits her unforeseen success through life's journey that asks the question, “what’s a leg got to do with it?”

    Her latest endeavor as the founder of the Divas With Disabilities Project™ has made an unprecedented impact in disability and women of color communities as a hub for thoughtful discussion on issues, self-love, and showing up, unapologetically in all forms of media. She also is producing a film documentary “Divas With Disabilities” that explores the lived experiences of women of color who live with physical disability in the United States. Dr. Walton earned her bachelor’s degree in 1979 from American University; a master’s degree in 1985 in Adult Education from Syracuse University; and, in 2005, a doctoral degree in Counseling from The George Washington University.
