#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.

Census Info

The 2020 census is here and you are a part of that count. Every ten years the government takes a count of U.S citizens. These numbers are used to allocate resources to your family and your community. Resources that contribute to the businesses in your community, the number of elected representatives your community has, in addition to the amount of funding that goes into your neighborhood for things like school lunches, improving roads, and educational programs in your area. Historically, Black people, as well as indigenous people and other people of color have been undercounted, but now, the Census will be administered online, so we have the power to ensure that does not happen this time.
