Women Engaged contributes to the groundbreaking Black Reproductive Justice Policy Agenda

Last week, In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda, Interfaith Voices for Reproductive Justice, and SisterLove, Inc. announced the release of the Black Reproductive Justice Policy Agenda, an innovative agenda created in collaboration with more than 30 Black women’s organizations and Reproductive Justice activists. Women Engaged is proud to stand as one of the 30 organizations that contributed to this groundbreaking policy agenda. 

The agenda offers proactive policy solutions to address issues at the intersections of race, gender, class, sexual orientation and gender identity within the situational impacts of economics, politics and culture that make up the lived experiences of Black women, femmes, girls and gender-expansive individuals in the United States. Furthermore, it addresses the need for systemic change to truly make the U. S. a place where all people can live and thrive. 

“Too often, policies are formulated and written into law without a full understanding of how those policies may impact the everyday life of real people,” said In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda President and CEO Marcela Howell. “This Black policy agenda presents proactive solutions grounded in a human rights framework and Black feminist theory, which we believe provides a clearer view of the needs of Black communities.”

Women Engaged is proud to be part of this initiative, continuing to fight for Black emmes, girls and gender-expansive individuals.
