A huge thank you to everyone who joined us during the 4TH annual and first- ever televised broadcast of the March for Black Women!
This virtual gathering reaffirmed that no matter the physical distances between us, and no matter what new challenges we meet going forward, the power of Black women in community with one another will see us through, and moves us ever closer to the future we have already claimed.
This was a celebration, a call to action, a space for comfort, and a catalyst for the liberation of Black Womxn, with the spirit of the ancestors surrounding us all.
Watch our broadcast of the revolution for and by Black Women
Saturday, September 26
As the General Election draws near, the stakes are the highest they’ve been.
We rise up because HER Black Life Matters.
We rise up to end violence against Black women.
We rise up refusing to choose between our race and our gender.
We rise up to reframe the conversation to be truth based and justice oriented.
We rise up to call in people across the gender spectrum to vote in the 2020 election and vote for women of color down the ballot.
Our vote is a vote for HER Black life!
These past few months, mass protests have overtaken the country and have served as an outlet for Black people to express justified outrage and grief at this nation’s blatant disregard for our lives. Yet even during this incredibly transformative moment, Black women and girls, disabled sisters, Trans and GNC communities, sisters across the border, and women that exist along all other axes of oppression have consistently been de-centered. Whether in police interactions, on the streets or in their own homes, theirs are the Black lives who continue to underscore the poignancy of this moment, and a future where all Black women and Black communities are liberated from persistent violence, domination and discrimination.
This march is a call to gather and mobilize in the name of Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Korryn Gaines, Oluwatoyin Salau, Nina Pop, Merci Mack, Monika Diamond, Riah Milton, Jayne Thompson, Atatiana Jefferson, Renisha McBride, and countless other Black women, Trans and GNC community who have been slain in our streets and their own homes, both by state sanctioned and gender based violence.
To our sisters: this movement could not and will not succeed without you, and we are proud to fight alongside you this September for the future we deserve in a world of our own making. If “we are all we’ve got,” then we choose to love each other fiercely." Join us virtually as we unite in all our diversity to unapologetically center Black cis, Trans and GNC voices in the continued fight for racial and gender justice.
We demand to be afforded the recognition, dignity, and respect that we deserve as Black Women, Black Trans, Black GNC communities.
We demand bodily autonomy and reproductive freedom through true forms of reproductive justice, both legislative and in practice, for Black communities.
We demand justice for the murdered.
We demand meaningful Presidential debates on issues that center Black women and BIPOC.
We demand meaningful debate on the BREATHE Act which divests our taxpayer dollars from brutal and discriminatory policing and invests in a new vision of public safety.
We demand a better VAWA which protects survivors rights.
We demand ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) more than a hundred years after it was introduced.
We demand that Title IX protects survivors and not perpetrators
