#WokeWednesdays - sign up

We demand that the United States Congress pass and enforce a bill outlawing coerced sterilizations and forced medical procedures on detained and incarcerated people by federal law enforcement agencies and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

The recent news of the violations at Irwin Detention Center is a continuation of attacks of our bodily autonomy rooted inhumane practices that date back to slavery. If it were not for the bravery of Dawn Wooten, a black woman, who stepped up and reported what was happening we would not be aware this was occurring in our own backyard.

Every Wednesday, join the WE Team in our efforts to #stopsterilizations by texting others to join our petition for progressive legislation to stop eugenics practices on incarcerated and detained women. After completion, you will gain access to our exclusive volunteer calendar with more actions, trainings, and opportunities. No experience required! Sign up today! https://bit.ly/stopsterilizations
