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
