WHAT DRIVES US

We are a Black and Indigenous, survivor led, reproductive justice group,  that centers the experiences of survivors of domestic, intimate partner, sexual and state violence.  We advocate for a range of political and social justice issues that directly impact Black and Brown communities.  We are abolitionists and believe that all forms of cages, jails and prisons impair the potential and growth of humans.  We are unapologetically BLACK.  We are a family and embrace ALL Black people with love and light.
