This is a special event offered by Queens of Weightlifting and we are proud to host!

"Sovereign Strength: A Queens' Gathering is the first open gym/intro to weightlifting event brought to you by Queens of Weightlifting!  QoW aims to make space for and provide visibility to women and gender non-conforming (gnc) weightlifters of color.  So we thought, what better way to begin to build that space than by hosting a free event sharing our love of weightlifting? 

We're inviting all those who identify as a woman or gnc person of color to attend, no matter your level of experience!  We will run an intro to weightlifting session for those who have no prior experience in the sport but are curious to learn, as well as an open gym option for those who would like to follow their own programming. 

Our home gym, Murder of Crows Barbell Club, has graciously provided us with their space at 919 Bergen Street in Brooklyn, NY on July 14th from 4-6pm.  We hope that you can join us for the entire event, but if you can’t be there the whole time, we still invite you to drop-in too. We’re excited to share the sport that we love with all of you and look forward to building community and sharing in some weightlifting fun. You can RSVP here.  We can't wait to lift and uplift with you!
