Black women leaders denounce federal abortion ban, call for Reproductive Justice supporters to register and vote
Statement by In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda President and CEO…
During Reproductive Justice Week of Action 2020, a week dedicated to mobilizing and amplifying our collective voices around policy and culture change issues, we asked our Next Generation Leadership Institute Fellows to join us as Swag Ambassadors. Each of our fellows, suited up in their RJWOA 2020 swag, shared why they’re voters and how they plan to vote on or before Nov. 3. With the November 2020 Election forthcoming, we must make a plan to vote and encourage our communities to do the same; here’s what our fellows had to say to their networks.

I am a voter because reproductive justice matters. This election is a matter of survival. So much is at stake, and I plan to vote for the candidate that will PROTECT Black Lives, LGBTQ+ individuals, immigrants, differently abled individuals, and the countless of other people who have been oppressed by this system. Having a voting plan in place is BEYOND important. This year I plan to vote by absentee ballot, and I plan to vote early. I challenge you all to register to vote, vote early and bring a friend to the polls. Let’s change this country together! #BlackWomenVote #RJWOA2020 #WhenWeAllVote #BlackLiveMatter #sayhername
