Her Voice, Her Vote Rally – TODAY, October 6, 2020

A rally outside of NYC City Hall and on Zoom with the Justice 4 Women Task Force. We uplifted the voices of women and our right to vote as justice-impacted people. Voting is so important, now more than ever, and especially for justice-impacted people who may not know that they have the right to vote. VOTE LIKE IT IS 1619 BECAUSE OUR FREEDOM, OUR LIVES, AND OUR RIGHTS ARE ON THE LINE!

What About Her? Rally at Rikers – August 18, 2020

A rally in front of the Rikers Island bridge and on Zoom organized by the Justice 4 Women COVID-19 Task Force. The What About Her? rally at Rikers was dedicated to women, past and present, who have been detained on Rikers Island and have experienced the trauma associated with it. Speakers touched on information including but not limited to: conditions of confinement, the need to end solitary confinement, release mechanisms, visitation, JPAY policies, and the inadequate care and unpreparedness regarding COVID-19. Through all of these discussions, it is clear that we need to FREE HER and CLOSE RIKERS NOW! #WhatAboutHer?

What About Her? Rally – July 3, 2020

A virtual and in person rally organized by the Justice 4 Women COVID-19 Task Force and the Women’s Community Justice Association to #SAYHERNAME and as #WeFightForHer. We were at three locations (NYC, Rockland, Long Island) to support women brutalized by police and corrections. Women of color are fighting a war on multiple fronts; gender and race politics cannot be viewed as separate issues, we MUST examine the ways in which they intersect to produce distinct forms of oppression. #WhatAboutHer
