4 Ways To Get Involved

4 Ways to Get Involved

Black women are powerful. We have always been politically engaged. Despite concerted efforts time and time again to silence our voices and votes, Black women have always led movements for change and mobilized to protect our human rights. The tragic loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a fearless protector of our constitutional and human rights, including voting rights, reminds us that our resistance and political engagement are essential now, more than ever.  We call upon Black women everywhere to take action during I AM A VOTER Reproductive Justice Week of Action (Sept. 28-Oct. 2), and to show up and show out at the polls this November!

I AM A VOTER

I AM A VOTER RJ Week of Action aims to bring united visibility to Black women’s powerful voting presence and the national I AM A VOTER campaignWe will energize, mobilize, and move our bases around the intersections of voting rights and Reproductive Justice, which includes bringing attention to state voting laws, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, opportunities for early voting, and more!
