HUGE THANKS for all who joined us yesterday at the Center for Civil and Human Rights for the In Our Own Voice Policy Brief on The State Of Black Women and Reproductive Justice. The event was a huge success and we left the gathering feeling inspired by the collective power in the room. A special thanks to our Atlanta partners, Sisterlove, Inc who moderated the event. If you missed the briefing, you can view a live recording here courtesy of Sisterlove and read the brief online.
