#ReconstructingJustice Women of Color HERStory Month® 2017 Twitter Chat

Join #NewVoices on Thursday, March 9, 1-2p EST for our #ReconstructingJustice Women of Color HERStory Month® 2017 Twitter Chat!

HASHTAGS: #ReconstructingJustice #WOCHM10 #HERStoryMaker

At the intersection of Black History Month and Women's Month, across all three of our cities (PHL, PGH, and CLE) New Voices for Reproductive Justice celebrates #WomenofColorHERStory month and the power, legacy, and achievements of Women and femmes of color, past, present, and future!  This year's Women of Color HERStory Month Theme is #ReconstructingJustice, a concept that pushes us to explore and elevate what it means for Women and femmes of color to activate their visions for leadership while envisioning, demanding, and reconstructing a world that holds and cares for us all.  In times of heightened political turmoil, this is the work of #ReconstructingJustice.  We have learned this from our ancestors and the young women, girls and femmes of today!

At New Voices, the motto that guides our work are the words of Nannie Helen Burroughs, "we specialize in the wholly impossible..." Through community organizing we will activate the consciousness of our communities and through civic engagement, reverse repressive conditions so as to reflect the full scope of our bodies, lives, labor, reproduction and sexuality.

This twitter chat will showcase how women of color from our ancestors to our young women, girls and femmes of today have always resisted. This chat will introduce questions that will provoke dialogue around how women and femmes of color are reconstructing justice and activating their visions.
