Today, we want to announce a new initiative – – In Our Own Voice: National Back Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda, – – to galvanize Black women and girls at the national and regional levels in support of Reproductive Justice.
In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda is a partnership between Black Women for Wellness, Black Women’s Health Imperative, New Voices Pittsburgh, SisterLove, SPARK Reproductive Justice Now and Communications Consortium Media Center. The initiative will focus on abortion rights and access, contraceptive equity, and comprehensive sex education as our key policy issues. As a Reproductive Justice initiative, we will approach these issues from a human rights perspective, incorporating the intersections of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity with the situational impacts of economics, politics, and culture that make up the lived experiences of Black women in this country.
