About WOCHM® 2018

Happy Women of Color HERStory Month® 2018!

New Voices for Reproductive Justice invites you to celebrate the power, legacy and achievements of women of color during Women of Color HERStory Month® 2018.

Since 2008, Women of Color HERStory Month® recognizes the exceptional social, economic, political, spiritual and cultural contributions of women of color, creates a forum for women of color to participate in leadership development, community organizing and policy advocacy while also educating the general public about Human Rights and Reproductive Justice for all people.

At the intersection of Black History Month and Women's Month, across all three of our cities (Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Philadelphia) New Voices for Reproductive Justice celebrates #WomenofColorHERStory Month and the power, legacy, and achievements of women, femmes and girls of color - past, present, and future!

This year's Women of Color HERStory Month® theme is #BreakingChainz on race and gender oppression as we resist anti-Black racism and gender-based violence in all its forms.

New Voices for Reproductive Justice is a multi-state organization building a social change movement dedicated to the health and well-being of Black women and girls through leadership development, Human Rights and Reproductive Justice. Reproductive Justice is the Human Right to control our bodies, sexuality, gender, work, reproduction and ability to form our families. New Voices for Reproductive Justice operates offices in Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Philadelphia. To learn more, visit newvoicespittsburgh.org.

Enjoy 30+ days of celebration with amazing events, daily inspirations and dynamic women of color! We encourage you to enjoy the full experience - attend the events, follow us on social media on Facebook and on Twitter @WOCHERStory and spread the word.
