BENEFITING: New Voices Pittsburgh Inc
Love. Sow. Grow.
Ever hear that expression? That’s what we need to do to build a movement of Black women and women of color -- one powerful enough to ensure that each of us has the right to control our body, our sexuality, our gender, and our reproductive life. And that’s what we’re doing at New Voices.
We just came back from a successful Kinks, Locks & Twists™ Conference, #KLT2017, August 17-19 in Philadelphia, PA. It was a space for Black women, gender non-conforming and trans people of color and allies to explore the relationship between the health and well-being of our bodies, our communities and the environment.
Lots of love and seed sowing happened here.
We’re continuing to love ourselves and our sisters and we’re sowing seeds of awareness and activism. And we’ve been able to grow activists that have sprouted up in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Cleveland into leaders for reproductive justice.
But it’s not enough.
We need to love, sow and grow a lot more people to create a reproductive justice movement with enough power to win fights in Harrisburg and in our local communities.
With your help - we can. Please give $35, $50, $100 or what you can to activate more women, embrace our cultural roots, and nurture seeds for social justice. Given the political climate - we can’t not do this!
We need to get lots more people who are new to New Voices to attend and grow and cultivate some of them into reproductive justice leaders after the conference.
Growing leaders takes time. And money.
We train our leaders in public speaking and grassroots organizing. We bring them together to talk about how reproductive and environmental justice issues have affected their lives so they can hone their storytelling skills. And we support them when they start organizing.
All that takes professional staff and professional staff costs money.
This is your movement.
Help grow it by contributing $35, $50, $100 or what you can today.
Peace and Blessings!
