This group will not only dream or wish to travel to the beautiful and exotic locales you see on Facebook or Instagram. Our members are committed to expanding their perspectives by opening their minds to different cultures. Others have asked "Do black people travel like that?" YES! And we will prove it. Hence the group name. So, if you would like to meet other women with common desires to make new friends, hang out and see the world, join our group. Come on! Flaunt your brown skin from coast to coast and country to country!
(Note: For those who are concerned, this group is not about separatism. It is about tackling a stigmatism within our own culture.)
By joining this group members understand agree to the group rules below.
We are happy to have everyone join the group. The experiences within the group will be enriched by full participation by many. However, the Organizer reserves the right to drop individuals from the group for lack of participation, inappropriate behavior, and actions not in the best interests of the group. That decision will be made by the Organizer. Additionally, new members must abide by the Cost of Becoming a Member, Photo, Liability Waiver and all subsequent future policies to be described on this page.
Participation Policy - IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
Did you know there is a monthly cost to running a meetup group? Did you know the cost increases at a certain number of members? Scheduled meetups are opportunities for you to network with like-minded women who, like you, want to meet new girlfriends, travel and experience new cultures together. The relationships developed here could be life changing to you and others in your presence. All of this is why it is important to have whole group participation. As we proceed, members who fail to participate in meetups over a course of time will be removed from the group in an effort to keep the group at a manageable size and to have members who really want to participate.
Cost of Becoming a Member
There is no set fee for membership in this Meetup group. The Organizer pays the required semi-annual Meetup dues to maintain the site and do the work to provide a variety of activities for the enjoyment of everybody. The Organizer will plan and execute the details of group events as best as can be done. However, some circumstances may develop that are beyond her control. Good members will appreciate those efforts with understanding when circumstances beyond control arise.
The Organizer has tried to list events that do not require her to collect money. Meetup Events will be presented that may require a fee for attendance. Members will be directed to pay those fees to third parties offering the travel/tour opportunity.
For consistency, new members failing to submit a photo of herself may be sent the following message:
“We are happy that you have joined our travel group. In order to continue to be a part of this group, it is mandatory that you upload a current profile photo of yourself so that all members of this group can see who will be joining them on these events (in all fairness to the other members who have uploaded their photos). Please do so within the next two days, otherwise, we will have no choice but to disallow your membership.”
Photos of pets and cute animals, cartoons, beautiful landscapes, flowers, etc. are not acceptable photographs. Photos prior to an event really do help when groups gather to verify that those who have indicated the desire to participate in an event have shown up.
The Organizer may disallow membership at any time even without the said notification outlined in the first paragraph of this section. If you are dropped for violation of the photo policy and subsequently are able to provide an acceptable photo, you may request to join again. Please understand that tracking compliance with this photo policy can become a time consuming administrative task. If you are dropped for violating this policy, it should not be taken personally. It is only fair that everybody comply equally.
