Empower, Engage & Educate (E3): Black HERStory & the Social Justice Movement

We are excited to bring you "Engage, Educate, Empower (E3): Organizing for Young Black Women and Femmes!"

Join us for our kick-off event, "Black HERStory & the Social Justice Movement" on March 11, 2017 from 11A-4P! We will begin the day with a workshop on healing and self-care and then spend the afternoon reflecting on historic strides made by Black women and femmes. Our special guest is Paris Hatcher, Founder of Black Feminist Future, coming all the way from Atlanta!

As part of the Sprout Funds’ 100 Days of US*, the SistahSpeak! Youth Project™ is excited to invite you to "E3", a series of social justice teach-ins focused on organizing young Black women and femmes in the Pittsburgh region. 

The 100 Days of US is an initiative to empower people to act locally during the first 100 days of the new presidential administration to advance positive, solution-oriented responses to issues of national importance. 

The E3 series will take place on March 11th, March 25th, and April 8th from 11A-4P, and cover the topics of "Black HERStory & the Social Justice Movement," "Ending Violence, Ending Criminalization" and "Organizing 101 for Young Black Women and Femmes." Through grounding workshops and core teach-ins, our goal is to uplift issues affecting young Black women, femmes, and girls and equip them with the skills to become life-long leaders in our communities and the broader intersectional movement.

*This event is also part of the 10th Annual Women of Color HERStory Month® Celebration, as well as supported in part by a 100 Days of Us award from the Sprout Fund!
