HELP US GET SURVIVORS TO THE MARCH.
GIVE WHAT YOU CAN TODAY!
Two Days; Two Cities:
On Saturday, September 29, 2018, Black women, in all their diversity, will converge in Washington, DC, and on Sunday, September 30, 2018, in New York City , because we will not be silenced nor will we be kept out of sight and out of the minds of so-called political and community leaders.
The Violence Against Women Act is set to expire on the second day of our March, September 30, 2018 and we don’t want any more debates. We want meaningful policies to end gender violence, the persistent feminization of poverty, the growing Black female prison population, restrictions to citizenship the deportation of Black and Brown people, restrictions to health care, reproductive justice and the ongoing war on women through gag orders and blocked funding by those hoping to retain or gain political leadership this November and beyond.
This September 29-30 we rally all over the country. Black women, cis, trans, and diverse identities, allies and comrades will unite and lock arms, marching unapologetically with all others who want to pull the foot of oppression off our necks and foreground a new social contract for all Black women, one necessary and subversive to the dominant, disempowering political narratives of the past, and courageous enough in the present to pass along to our future generations.
We believe in the power of our demands and the strength of our convictions to take back what is already ours and build a new social contract for Black women given the political urgency of now. As various communities of Black women, we have always faced innumerable personal, and unspeakable brutalities. We cannot allow the travesties that have affirmed disregard for our existence to continue to flourish while we wither away with resentment and stew in our own rage. Continue to act to eradicate oppression wherever it shows up. This has been our inherited tradition for centuries, practiced in diverse ways around the world, in in both peaceful protest and in righteous anger in the face of indignities and in the face of dehumanization.
