During the month of October, we have been talking about domestic violence (DV) and intimate partner violence (IPV) as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Earlier this month In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda partnered with several other Reproductive Justice organizations for our 2019 Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence Week of Solidarity Campaign. Our hope is to bring awareness to important intersections between DV and IPV and Reproductive Justice.
In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda was thrilled to participate in a “Coffee and Conversation” on the intersections of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Maternal Health hosted by Ujima, Inc.: The National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community. The conversation centered on violence, bias, and preventable deaths experienced by Black women throughout the duration of a pregnancy.
