Black Women for Wellness is happy to support AB2348, that will expand women’s access to timely, effective and safe birth control from a trusted and qualified provider.
Join Black Women for Wellness this June at Bring a Brother to Breakfast… We will be exploring how racism effects/affects the health and wellness of Black men and boys. Stay tune for more information… but if you have any questions please contact Denise at 323.290.5955
Rep Frank Trent re-introduce Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2011, which is a slick attempt to end abortion rights for women of color. We need your support in telling Congress that this is not OK, and women of color’s health and wellbeing should not be used as a political tool. We need you to send letters, call your Representatives and make sure women of color reproductive rights don’t get thrown under the bus!

A copy of the brief is attached so you can read it for yourself.
