The Radical Monarchs create opportunities for young girls of color to form fierce sisterhood, celebrate their identities and contribute radically to their communities.
The Radical Monarchs empower young girls of color so that they step into their collective power, brilliance and leadership in order to make the world a more radical place.
Why Radical Monarchs? +
We were inspired by the legacies of social justice movements and the desire to create a space centered on the development of young girls of color; we want to empower and nurture their strength. In these trying times for communities of color with histories of struggle and beautiful resilience, this space is rare, necessary and should be celebrated.

Why Berets? +
We are inspired by movements grown by the community; movements that fight for justice and seek alternative ways to look after and represent themselves. The berets pay homage to the spirits and sentiment of the Brown Beret and Black Panther movements of the past.
