Statement from In Our Own Voice President and CEO Marcela Howell WASHINGTON — Once again,…
In a world where Reproductive Justice is the standard, all women and girls have the complete economic, social, political power and resources to make healthy decisions about our bodies, families, and communities. When we step into the world “living a Reproductive Justice life,” the resources we need are abundant — resources like accessible health care, quality education, affordable housing, clean air and water, and safe neighborhoods. Our vision is our reality.
Today, we’re launching our #LivingaRJlife campaign — a year-long effort to connect our values for an equitable world with our collective power and action. Read below to find out ways you can get involved and help secure a Reproductive Justice future for Black women, femmes, and girls!
Share How You’re Living a RJ Life
We want to know what Living A RJ Life looks like for you. We’re asking Black women, femmes, girls, and their allies to join us in sharing how they are Living A RJ Life. It’s simple:
- Take a video of yourself. Start by saying, “This is what Living A RJ Life means to me.” Share what a RJ Life looks like to you. Feel free to reference some of the examples we’ve listed above!
- Share your video on social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and/or Twitter). Be sure to tag @BlackWomensRJ and use the #LivingARJLife, #BlackRJ, and #ImagineAWorld in your post.
- Please help us to amplify this vision! Share this toolkit and your video with your friends, family, and colleagues, asking them to submit their own videos (following the instructions in step 2).
Spread the Word
We know that Black women, femmes, and girls are powerful. Our collective stories have changed history and continue to make history daily. Let’s share them even more widely. “Living A RJ Life” offers a platform to ensure that our experiences are heard near and far. Our #LivingARJLife Digital Toolkit provides you with social language and graphics to share across your social media networks.
